Another one from the old tape box – Large Professor talking about his upcoming Geffen album, which as we all know, was never actually released. After the luke-warm reception his two singles received, Xtra P became another tax write-off. But when he chatted with Westwood in New York – late April of 1996 – things were still on track. As usual, Paul makes for an excitable and somewhat eccentric interview subject, sounding as “spacey” as ever. To round things off, Large and his boys from Flushing drop some (drunken/blunted) freestyle action and proceed to “have fun”. And giggle a lot.
Large Professor Interview & Freestyle (Westwood Radio 1 Rap Show, 1996)
Is it just me or did the big guy seem to lose something when he started wearing contacts? As the original “live guys with glasses”, both Large Pro and Zev Love X could be seen proudly sporting their nerd frames in the early nineties. Since they reverted from four eyes to two, things have never been the same. Not to say that they fell-off, but things changed dramatically for both of them. Zev became MF Doom and basically took over underground hip-hop, while Large can’t get arrested. Maybe he needs to dust off those “crystal made of rock glasses”.
