BioProlific hip-hop super producer KutMasta Kurt figures he's got about 6,000 records in his apartment. He hasn't worked on that many records himself, but he's worked on more releases than we can mention here. His longtime collaborations with Kool Keith have been tirelessly innovative and wildly creative. Kurt has also worked with the Beastie Boys, Mos Def, Dilated Peoples, Blackalicious, Del tha Funkee Homosapien and scores more. Artistically, he's fearless and easily steps out of the box, he has no limits on himself, delighting in bizarrely themed concept albums. His knowledge of the recording industry- he's done projects for piles of different labels- is deep and cynical; the guy's got a strong bullshit detector and knows how to make things happen.
