Producer extraordinaire Just Blaze sat down with Hard Knock TV’s Nick Huff Barili for an in-depth interview. Just Blaze starts off by talking about Hip Hop incorporating more EDM sounds and how he was ahead of the curb incorporating dance elements into Hip Hop tracks like Joe Budden’s “Fire” back in 2004. As the interview continues Justin talks about signing XV and how he thinks XV has the potential to be one of the next ones. He also states that he has 5 records with him for Kid With The Green Backpack album. Before we let him go we had to ask Just about his relationship with Jay Electronica after making classics like Exhibit A and Exhibit C. He says that since Jay moved out to London they haven’t had a chance to work together but that they talk and are friends. Just says that he has heard the album, but doesn’t know if Jay will call it Act 2 or Act 3 but hopes that they will have time to work on it before Jay has to turn it in. Just ends the interview by saying that he is working on tracks for Drake, Rick Ross and one of the biggest pop stars in the world among others. Can you guess who it might be???
Side note: This interview took place at 4am in hotel lobby. Just Blaze had a flight in the early morning, was just getting back from gig and was recovering from being sick the previous four days yet he still took time to make sure this interview happened. Our gratitude and deepest RESPECT!!!
