Large Professor: Producer. Mentor. Influencer. The rapper/producer extraordinaire deserves to be on Hip Hop’s Mount Rushmore, due to his impact on the culture. From mentoring a young and upcoming Nas, to producing Cormega’s 2014 gem, Mega Philosophy, Xtra P isn’t quitting anytime soon. Creating a bouncy, sinister rendition to Blu‘s 2012 released single “Kiss the Sky,” originally produced by M-Phazes, Pro manages to transform Blu’s bars into a destructive force of nature. Whereas the original had the Australian beat smith providing a more inspirational and soulful vibe, Xtra P’s version flips the script entirely by showcasing just how deadly he is with an MPC, while DJ Revolution shreds a classic Method Man quotable into oblivion. Large Professor’s remix of “Kiss The Sky” will be featured on our remix compilation, Remineded: A Collection of Old & New Remixes, which is now available for pre-order via iTunes, for its official release date next week.
Please note that limited edition 7-inch 45s of both the original and remix versions of “Kiss the Sky” are now available for pre-order through Fat Beats,and will include a drop card for a free download of Remineded.
