Large Professor is the NYC based producer, DJ and MC that demanded the world’s attention from his work on the widely successful A Tribe Called Quest album, “Midnight Marauders.” But it was years beforehand that Large Processor, also known as Extra P or Large Pro, broke into the industry as producer and MC for the group Main Source.
Large Professor soon after became a full-time producer and worked with every monumental act in hip-hop from Big Daddy Kane, Eric B. & Rakim, Mobb Deep, Grand Puba, and Busta Rhymes, to the Beastie Boys, Slick Rick, Common, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, and Gang Starr, while also serving as mentor and collaborator to Nas. Some say it was his legendary work on Nas’ forever classic “Illmatic” record that put him in the books as one of the world’s best hip-hop producers. About.com ranked Large Professor #5 on its Top 50 Hip-Hop Producers list.
Whatever Large Professor touches seems destined to become classic and through it all, this Queens auteur continues to push the movement forward whether lacing others or blazing his own path. The Lodge At RedRocks is very excited to have Large Professor on Saturday May 31st for an exclusive DJ set. Also on the bill is DJ Stylus of The Sol Power All Stars and localy acclaimed DJ/producer, SHARKEY. Doors are at 8pm. As always at The Lodge, NO COVER.
