On June 26, Large Profesor will release Professor @ Large. The latest work from the legendary Queens, New York emcee/producer/deejay features the likes of Busta Rhymes, Saigon and Grand Daddy I.U., among others. This is the early Nas mentor’s first solo album since 2008’s Main Source, taking its name from P’s famed early ’90s group. The album is Large Pro’s first solo outing with Fat Beats / Distrolord Digital.

“The tree’s still growing, still branching out,” said Large Professor in a statement. “But it’s been so long since we’ve heard these sounds. This is what we love and there’s a lack of it right now…When I started out, it was just about talking slick on the mic in the vein of the old deejays,” he continued. “Now when I write, it’s in defense of real Hip Hop. Of the street and the slang. Once I get busy, it all comes pouring out.”

Last year Extra P worked with longtime associate Neek The Exotic on Still On The Hustle.
