  • Anthony

    I’m like half way through the interview I’m just blown away about the some of the behind the scenes tales of the Rocafella days, it should be a movie or docuseries about them

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

  • That Labi Siffre track is nasty. Hip Hop’s taste has been good to my ears.

  • Real Talk

    Even Elliott knows the blasphemy of this nigga’s nickname since he is promoting him as Hop. Lmfao!

  • Megamind

    @brianbdotmiller:disqus Why you disrespect Sadat X?? Say his name like “WTF is he doing there?”….He’s part of a legendary group and a pioneer….you gotta have more reverence. Yeah, yeah….we know Hov is the best…but he stood on the shoulders of giants to get there…that’s why he could acknowledge that Sadat’s uniqueness is what made him great.

    Come on G!

    Good interview…good to hear Hop tell these stories some of us saw from the Def Jam/Roc/Murder Inc days!..host of characters like Bobby Dash, Tone from Original Flavor used to be selling trees! LOL…Him and Hakeem from Channel Live…a lot of funny shit…I was a YOUNGIN!…am I’m STILL going in the game…glad to be here too!….Y’all keep up the good work!

    Y’all need to get KP in there to talk about HIS A&R shit! Outkast, TI, Pink, John Legend, Goodie Mob, etc.

    Megamind

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

      No shade to Sadat X, just random as hell for him to be there!

      • socialceelo free download

        Aye bdot it’s no way you can say song cry is jayz best song. His catalog to big. It’s moods at a certain time that makes a jay song what it is. Too many classics to pick from.

        • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

          It’s hard to narrow down, but if i HAD to, i’d go with that…that’s not even my favorite Jay song

  • Santigo

    I’m gonna be interested to see what Producers end up on Nas album…If you really have studied Nas catalog, there’s only like 15-20 guys he’s worked with that’s he made incredible records with…I want those guys! If anybody new, 9th Wonder, Jake One, Nottz, Bink, Showbiz, Erick Sermon…but I would love to hear Nas get back with Preemo, Pete Rock, Alchemist, Buckwild, Nashiem Myrick, LES, Havoc…Those guys will produce 1 helluva Nas album where nobody can criticize Nas beat selection.

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

      Trackmasters too

      • Santigo

        Yessir! Did he mention any producers at all on the side…Hearing that they hung out at Alchemist studio makes me hope Alchemist got a couple joints with him

  • el jim chapo guzman

    This nigga was the man behind the man behind man.

  • Dbones

    Dope interview guys but last time I checked, an executive producer is different from an A & R.

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

      Thanks!
