Venus Dialogues | The Prolific Scientific Large Professor

Extra P remains one of my top fave producers of all time. With a career spanning more than two decades, his works are intrinsic to hip hop culture. I had the fortunate opportunity to connect with Large Pro to discover what creations he has in the making.
Absolute Venus: Let the people know about the projects that you are currently working on.
Large Professor: I'm currently completing a full project with Cormega called "MegaPhilosophy", along with a new batch of songs for myself.  And as always, a gazillion other independent productions.
Absolute Venus: Are there any collabos with other artists (lyricists, producers, etc.) that you would like to mention?
Large Professor: Yes, I currently have a song with N.O.R.E called "Built Pyramids" that developed nicely.  Just got up with a new kid named Kaysito from the Bronx that's kind of ill.  

Absolute Venus: When you’re creating art, what inspires you?
Large Professor: EVERYTHING.  From how the sun shines, to the cleanliness of a room, to memories.  
Absolute Venus: In what ways (if any) has the rise of digital music/technologies transformed your creative process?
Large Professor: The digital age made archiving and storage a lot easier.  Where before you would have a 2" reel with 3 songs that took up a lot of space, you can now have a hard drive that can have hundreds of thousands of songs that can fit in your back pocket.  The ease of having everything in a laptop makes a lot of hard tasks from the past so much easier.
Absolute Venus: Who are your favorite artists out right now (in any genre)?
Large Professor: I like Lee Fields, the Truth and Soul Band and all of the artists that are keeping that "Soul" alive. 
Absolute Venus: Where can real heads find your music? What formats (i.e. MP3, CD, vinyl)?
Large Professor: Real heads can always find my music online, and if they dig, they can hit up vinyl record hip hop stores. 
Absolute Venus: Are you currently touring or doing shows?
Large Professor: Definitely.  Always doing sporadic shows and DJ gigs wherever the love is.
Absolute Venus: Outside of music do your have other creative/professional endeavors that you would like to mention?
Large Professor: Everything I do professionally is within musical parameters, from DJ'ng, Producing, A&R etc.  I knew early in my life I would be in the music industry.
Absolute Venus: What's your official web/social media site(s)?

Love & Light,
