With HJIC (Head Jew In Charge) Paul Rosenberg in-studio (alongside Stretch Armstrong & Lord Sear – ah the memories, right?) – DJ Whoo Kid got Rick Rubin to phone in to his show on Shade 45. Rick has been a busy man this year, having worked on some of the biggest projects including Yeezus (which has been certified gold) and Em’s MMLP2.

Rick tells a few stories about being white in Hip-Hop, including both LL & Russell’s reaction when they first met him. He also goes on to talk about the latter aforementioned album being the first Hip-Hop record he’s worked on since “99 Problems”.
