KEEP IT REAL FIRST THURSDAYS
On the Great South Side in beautiful Hype Park KEEP IT REAL FIRST THURSDAYS brings Legends and Vanguards together with Chicago hip hop talent to share the spotlight, demonstrating what it means to be Chi Rock and Not ChiRaq!
This month the resident Sound Provider on deck DJ SP-1 and host KINGDOM ROCK present legendary DJ/producer/MC LARGE PROFESSOR.
LARGE PRO is so involved with the history of hip-hop, it's almost impossible to separate the two. His first beat-work was for Eric B. and Rakim. As a founder of the golden age crew Main Source, he gave Nasty Nas his debut. He rapped and produced on Tribe's Midnight Marauders, and co-crafted the sound of Illmatic. The list goes on: Kool G, Kane, Slick, Busta, Common. Whatever L.P. touches seems destined to become classic and through it all, like rap itself, this Queens auteur continues to push the movement forward whether lacing others or blazing his own path. His third solo album Professor @ Large takes the Prof's beloved boom-bap and reinvents it for a new school of students and practitioners alike.
