Let the Record Show Ep. 17: Just Blaze
Let the Record Show, the crate-dug interview series in which artists discuss their favorite songs of all time as the tracks spin on vinyl, continues its third season today with multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated producer Just Blaze.
A seasoned vinyl collector himself, Just Blaze reveals a handful of seminal funk, hip-hop, house, and 80s classics that shaped his tastes at an early age, covering everything from Large Professor to Todd Terry to Phil Collins.
Blaze also recounts the stories behind the making of each Jay Z’s “U Don’t Know”, Beyonce’s “Freedom” and T.I.’s “Laugh at Em”. The long-time Carter collaborator also reveals that he has produced at least two albums of Jay-Z material that remains unreleased and has also recently given M.O.P. all of the instrumentals that were originally intended for their shelved 2004 Roc-A-Fella Records debut.
