THE LARGE PROFESSOR “THE LP” is Legendary Hip Hop Producer and Emcee Large Professor’s highly anticipated 1st solo debut album that was originally slated to come out on Geffen Records in 1995/1996. Due to label politics at the time, the album unfortunately was never released. 14 Years later in 2009 the official version of “THE LP” became available on CD & Double Vinyl LP. For almost 10 years this Vinyl has been out of print and in high demand. We are now offering a special limited transparent blue colored reissue (500 piece pressing).
“THE LP” includes bonus unreleased songs and a few rare unearthed alternate demo versions of classic tracks such as the “Mad Scientist”. It also includes “I Juswanna Chill”, “That Bullsh*t”, the title track “The LP”, “Hard”, “One Plus One” featuring NAS, the newly polished up “Queens Lounge” and many more including the unreleased single “Amaman” b/w “Bowne” that was available on the now out of print 12” vinyl. “Amman” is a coming of age song where Xtra P kicks profound lyrics over a funky soulful track with an intense horn filled chorus. “Bowne” is Large Pro paying homage to his Alma mater: John Bowne High School in Flushing Queens, NY. “Bowne” has an infectious melody with thought provoking lyrics describing how he got his start producing and Emceeing back in High School. All songs are produced by The Large Professor except “Large Pro:Verbs” produced by Vandamator & “Spacey” produced by Toney Rome.
This album is officially sanctioned by The Large Professor and being released through Paul Sea Productions. “The LP” is from the BOOM BAP era of Hip Hop... Before “JIGGY” and champagne spitting, money talking rappers became prevalent. As Large Professor states “This album represents a time in the 1990s when Hip Hop was more about the good times, when artists were rich in music and rich in talent and it wasn’t about how much money you had.”
