Playlist 3-Feb-17 – BHM Producer Showcase Pt. 1: Marley Marl

To celebrate Black History, DirtyNeedles will be doing our second annual producer showcase for the entire month of February, highlighting the work of integral producers and their contributions to black music. For this week’s episode, we  kicked things off by paying tribute to the king Marley Marl. Marley’s contributions to hip-hop cannot be overstated. Quite simply, he is a pillar of hip-hop production and his innovations in the early 80s are still employed today.  Many will argue he is the greatest hip hop producer of all time and one look at his resume and it’s hard to against it. Just kick a little something for the cars that be bumpin’.
