Large Professor f/ Busta Rhymes “Straight From The Golden” (2012)

Album: Professor @ Large

Label: Fat Beats/Distrolord Digital

Producer: Large Professor

Large Professor: “The joint with Busta is nice too, because it’s me trying that double-time flow. I tried my hand at the quick flow. I had the beat, and it’s kind of the New York style of that. I wasn’t trying to go deep into those snare rolls and all of that crazy shit, but it does have that tempo.

“I was kind of uncertain, because I tried it [but didn’t know how people would react to it]. So I sent it to Bust. And he was like, ‘Yo, that shit is hot, what you said on there.’ And I was like, ‘Oh shit, Bust is feeling it.’ But then he took it to another level, like, ‘I like what you said, but I’m about to go in!’ [Laughs.]

“This album came together nice. It kind of flowed. I didn’t have a deadline on it or anything, so I had a chance to marinate on it. The project as a whole has a nice light on it. It finally feels like I’m out of the dark stages of my solo career. It feels like I’m finally out to the light. I’m just happy to be here and do what I do.”
