Hip Hop 101 Vol. 11: Large Professor

Today we discuss the super producer, Emcee and hip hop legend Large Pro, Extra P, or Large Professor to use a few. His influence and continuing contributions to hip hop grow every day. Born and raised in Harlem, NY Large P comes from an area rich with music history and monuments (although many have been torn down like the Harlem Ballroom that used to be the home of many rappers from 1978-86 DJ Donald D, B Fats, Bill Blast, AJ scratch, Love bug Starski) like the Hip Hop hall of fame that was recently opened and inducted The Roots  last year.

This week on the P&B Show: Immortal Technique

This week we discuss the Emcee, producer and political activist that is, Immortal Technique. In 2001, Immortal Technique released his first album Revolutionary Vol. 1 which is a classic conscious hip hop album that was put out independently, which contained the underground classic Dance With The Devil. In November 2002, he was listed by The Source in its “Unsigned Hype” column, highlighting artists that are not signed to a record label. The following year, in September 2003, he received the coveted “Hip Hop Quotable” in The Source for a song entitled “Industrial Revolution” from his second album. Immortal Technique is the only rapper in history to have a “Hip Hop Quotable” while being unsigned.
