"Hard Knock Life" Producer The 45 King Blessed Boiler Room with an Hour Long DJ Set

The 45 King has had one of the most notable production careers in rap. After dominating the late 80s b-boy era with his inescapable horn break "The 900 Number" (you've heard it before), he led the Flavor Unit through the early 90s and, after a substantial hiatus, produced "Hard Knock Life" for Jay Z and "Stan" for Eminem within two years. As his name suggests, he's got a rep for deep crates: this mix is heavy on chunky eccentric old school, from Jay Z St. Ides liquor commercials to loopy jazz breaks, all spun from what look to be custom 7'' Serato controllers.
