Album: Professor @ Large

Label: Fat Beats/Distrolord Digital

Producer: Large Professor

Large Professor: “Fame comes in the studio, and I’m mixing these other songs, and he’s like, ‘Yo, you working on something?’ We both work in the Chop Shop. So I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’d love to finally get you on something,’ because I was supposed to have him on my last album. He was like, ‘Nah, I’m gonna come through on this one.’

“So I knocked the joint out, and I play him the beat. So he knocks out his verse—the verse is fire! Fuckin’ fire! So I’m going to the mastering house, because I’m finally finished with the album, and I get on the phone with Fame, and he goes, ‘When you gonna let me do my verse over?’ [Laughs.] I don’t know, he just wanted to do it over. Wow. So we went back in the studio, and Fame did his verse over. [Laughs.] He ripped it on both of them, so that was nice.”
