During Nas Week, we gave you Part 1 of our Large Professor Tells All interview, in which he broke down the stories behind his contributions to Illmatic, his early work with Main Source, Rakim, and Kool G Rap, as well as his Midnight Marauders collaboration with A Tribe Called Quest.

In Part 2, we pick up where we left off with Extra P—in 1996, as he transitioned into his solo career with “The Mad Scientist,” continued his chemistry with Nas on Stillmatic, and produced his first song featuring Wu-Tang Clan MCs. He also talks about the making of three tracks on his new solo album Professor @ Large, which drops on June 26 (you can pre-order here)—including the premiere of two new joints with Busta Rhymes and Fame of M.O.P. Class is in session.

As told to Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)
