People who follow this blog and know me know I'm a hugely fascinated with the work of Paul C McKasty; the pioneering producer/engineer in the early to late '80s that was behind some fantastic Music like "Give the Drummer Some", Main Source stuff, much of Eric B. & Rakim's arguably best album "Let the Rhythm Hit 'Em" and Organized Konfusion's 1989 demo (although his spiritual fingerprints where all over their classic 1991 self-titled debut, two years after his untimely passing). On top of that he was Large Professor's nr #1 mentor and Large Pro is like the spiritual predecessor to Paul C as he started really building his career when the Young but super innovative producer/engineer was tragically murdered (Large Pro still to this day is calling his production copany Paul Sea productions in an homage to his old master). This one hour documentary features interviews with many of his closest collaborators; including Rakim Pharoahe Monch, Ced Gee & TR Love of Ultramagnetic MC's, Mikey D, Rahzel, Super Love C and Cassanova Rud to name a few. A must Watch for anyone fascinated with hip-hop and legends that lef the physical way too early, but his Music still has an extreme impact on any true old-school fan, so ENJOY and TURN IT UP!!!

My name is Kevin Crenshaw. Paul and I were great friends well before we broke into the music industry. He was one of the most compassionate people I have ever met to this day.ReplyDelete
