NPR Microphone Check – Marley Marl Interview


Picture: Photo Rob

Stumbled across this NPR interview with Marley Marl from last year, conducted by ATQC’s Ali Shaheed and Frannie Kelley. Covers the usual ground but contains some gems as well, such as the fact that A Tribe Called Quest is Marley’s favorite hip-hop group. Also provides yet another variation on the story about how his drum sounds were used on “The Bridge Is Over”, which KRS-One told me was made by jacking the drums from the “Eric B. Is President” 12″.

@Jay the Black Jew: Calling it “subtle” is rather generous.
