Producer: K-Def
Album: The Turnaround: A Long Awaited Drama
Label: Big Beat Records

K-Def cut his teeth as a producer working under the tutelage of Marley Marl, crafting beats for the likes of Da Youngstas and Lords of the Underground. Then he teamed with rapper Larry-O to form Real Life and delivered the classic cut "Real Live Shit." The remix, featuring Ghostface and Raekwon, only upped the ante. The New Jersey-natives' debut LP, The Turnaround: A Long Awaited Drama, has been long considered a rap classic, but outside of K-Def's production work in the mid-aughts, little has been heard from this duo since.
