Large Professor feat. Cormega & Tragedy Khadafi – Focused Up

This song might make you think you’ve woken up in 1993, which is a good thing. Yelling on the hook? Check. Horn stabs? Check. Three dope Queens rappers? Check.

Professor @ Large has got a lot of quality material on it. A nice mix of guest spots, instrumentals and classic Xtra P raps. Cop it on June 26 through Fat Beats.

This French production duo just dropped their debut LP, Funky As Usual, with some nice guest spots. The highlight for me was this third version of the Large Pro feature which dropped a couple of years back in it’s original form and then with a remix on 7″ last year. A revisiting of ‘Looking At The Front Door’ with a a different perspective….

Searching For The Perfect Remix: Large Professor

Trying to pick the best Paul Mitchell remix is like trying to pick your favorite type of booze – they all work in the real situation. But since I’m restricting each round to eight selections, stuff like the “Resurrection’ remixes just missed out on making the cut.

The Story Behind Large Professor’s The LP

You might recall this from my interview with the artist once known as Paul Juice recently:

Robbie: Is ‘Queens Lounge’ from The LP ever going to see a proper release?

Large Professor: I’ll go back through the archives and try to dig that up and dust that off and get it right, man. I wanna finally put that stuff out there the right way – how it was supposed to originally be put out there. I might have to dust some of them tracks off, man, and get ‘em right. That album, The LP, was so muddy and dirty. The people [at Geffen] they wanted to pull outta the deal and everything, it was like, ‘Yo, I gotta go back to the drawing board and get something fresh and new to work with, so I’m not just sittin’ here with the 12-bit sampler – about to go to the grave with a SP-1200 and some floppy discs!’.

Turns out he was good to his word, with both CD and double vinyl versions of The LP shipping at the end of this month. This is good news for fans of Flushing’s Finest, for although this album isn’t Breaking Atoms 2, it doesn’t need to be. This is the musical document of a troubled man trying to make sense of the music industry, a solo career and growing-up, and as such presents a stripped-down, back-to-the-basics sound while still mining previously unheard samples. His DJ at the time, Dr. Butcher, explains in more detail last year:

Grand Puba feat. Large Pro – Same Old Drama

Short but nothin’ sweet about this old mouf convention. Sounds like Large Paul did the track too. Grand Puba’s Retroactive drops on the 23rd via Babygrande.


Grand Puba feat. Large Pro - Same Old Drama

Bonus: Puba on “Punks…”

DX: Do you remember your initial reaction when you first heard “Punks Jump Up To Get Beat Down” and “Pass The Gat”?

Grand Puba: That’s the thing that kinda messed me up [after leaving the group to go solo], ‘cause I wish I was on “Punks,” I woulda murdered that shit. I was like, “Damn!” It’s like I know [Sadat] X wish he was on “360,” and Jamar wish he was on “Soul Controller.” I had that [moment after “Punks”] like, “Damn, man.” That shit, and the “Pass The Gat” shit. Those are my regrets, man. I wish I was on them joints right there
