Ski Beatz Goes “Off The Record” With LRG

Legendary producer Ski Beatz gets on camera for LRG’s Off The Record series to discuss his introduction to and profound love for hip hop production. During the interview, Beatz discusses everything from the first live-in studio opportunity in Harlem that allowed him to hone in on his skills, to the first time he met then-up-and-coming act Jay-Z. There’s even a quick flashback to Ski’s early days as an MC himself with group Original Flavor and his break with Atlantic Records thanks to DJ Clark Kent.
