Large Professor Comp.

Another one of the greatest producers the world has ever known, William Paul Mitchell, better known as The Large Professor (or The Live Guy With Glasses). He solidified his position in the hip-hop's hall of fame with ghost-producing Eric B. & Rakim's "Let The Rhythm Hit 'Em" and "Wanted: Dead Or Alive" by Kool G Rap and Polo before releasing the classic "Breaking Atoms" with his group, at the time, Main Source. "Breaking Atoms" consisted of MC and producer Large Professor and two Toronto DJ's, Sir Scratch and K-Kut. The album featured the 16 bars debut from young Nasty Nas who Large took under his wing and within a few years produced on and helped put together the ultra-classic Nas debut, "Illmatic". The Queens producer has made his work known all over the place, helping artists like Busta Rhymes, Cormega, A Tribe Called Quest, Diamond D, Akinyele (who's dope "Vagina Dinner" was fully produced by Large Pro). He has also released three solo albums so far, seeing that he ain't no joke on the mic either. I might write a little more extensive bio on Large Pro sometimes but the reason for this post is that i put together a compilation of his outside production, some of the classics and some of the lesser known tracks. All in all 17 tracks that I feel are representive of Large's production work from '91 to '99 (there will be further installments in this series) and as usual you won't find any Main Source/Large Pro album material on here as that kinda defeats the purpose in my opinion.
