One can never be tired of stories from Young Guru. One of, if not the, best hip hop engineers in the business, Gimel Keaton has been responsible for the iconic “knocks” of albums from JAY Z, T.I, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Little Brother, and a host of others. Needless to say, when Guru speaks, people listen.
Guru was invited to the Upper West Side of Manhattan to speak to the podcast duo of Cipha Sounds and Peter Rosenberg, better known as Juan Epstein. While there he regaled the two with tales about producers Chucky Thompson (Mary J Blige, Usher, Notorious B.I.G.), D-Dot (The Madd Rapper, The LOX, Beanie Sigel), and Just Blaze, rappers like JAY Z, Kanye West, and Memphis Bleek, and everyone in between. It’s a little over two hours, but it is well worth the listen.
