Kool G Rap: "I met Large Professor through Eric B. Large was working with Eric B. and Rakim, and I heard what he was doing with Main Source and thought the singles were crazy. It was fucking amazing watching that dude. That dude on the SP1200s was like a one man band. I never seen anybody function the SP1200 like he did. He would chop shit up like he was on a typewriter.

"I’ve seen things like a blind man playing saxophone driving through Harlem when I was young. That just comes from my involvement in New York City. All this shit you would’ve seen, especially in the ‘70s. You would see dope fiends on the corner, dudes with puffy hands from shooting so much dope. I’ve seen that shit a lot man. I’ve seen dudes with no eyes in their sockets. I’ve seen a chick with a fucking slit across her throat.
"I was always a part of the streets. You know how many dudes around me did shit, killed people and got killed? I wasn’t detached from the streets at all."
