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 & 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 & 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 Coalmine Records' forthcoming 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, January 20th.
Please note that limited edition 7-inch 45s of both the original & 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'. Orders are expected to ship in time for next week's release. Click here to pre-order your copy!!!
