For those who don't know, Large Professor was a founding member of the group Main Source and one of the main producers on Illmatic (and countless other classic records). And he's still going strong, both rapping and producing. He's just given us "Opulence", a new single off his upcoming album Re: Living.
The record is a nice change of pace for those of you struggling to keep up with all the fleeting trends in today's scene. It's a classic chilled-out, head-bobbing production, with deliberate words of wisdom from a self-assured legend.
God told me my luck'll
Change, once I flee the cage
And start thinking long range
Ever since then I commish
Paddle on, mad strong, and add on to the opulence
