Sound familiar? Then you know Large Professor. Go ahead, check the credits. We'll wait.
Since high school student William Paul Mitchell broke in with Main Source as MC and producer, Extra P's been in demand. Think Lil' Bow Wow or Chi Ali was a prodigy? Hell, the Prof taught the real Prodigy -- the one out of Mobb Deep -- his way around a studio. And that was after he taught DJ Premier how to use his SP1200. A grateful Primo reciprocated, introducing LP to his record collection and brought Main Source to the attention of Wild Pitch.
