The former figurehead & main producer of the original Flavor Unit has another important element to the show. 45 invites on producers, DJ’s & rappers & talks with them about their careers & hip hop beats. Recent vistors on 45 King’s show include Diamond D, DJ Premier, Biz Markie, Kid Capri, Chill Rob G, Double J & Prince Paul. The shows are filmed as well & can be viewed on his YouTube channel (link below).
The 45 King’s main claims to fame come from him producing Jay-Z’s “Hard Knock Life” & Eminem’s “Stan”, but his beat making legacy is much larger than this. His numerous beat albums on Tuff City Records are now collectors items, the elements of which (Old soul & funk) heavily influence his shows.
