You (almost) can’t read the linear notes of a Jay-Z album and not fail to notice the name of Young Guru crop up. Engineer and ad-lib reference for Mr Carter spends just over 2hrs talking about his career and work to date. I have listened to every Jay-Z song and yet much of the work is done by folk like Young Guru who we know almost nothing about. I love the internet for gems like these.
One of my favourite moments is when one of the audience asks:
If you love underground hiphop why doesn’t Jay-Z rhyme to underground beats? peep the video to discover the answer!
Follow Young Guru.
