[Interview] Just Blaze talks “Higher,” praise from Big Daddy Kane, and meeting Jay-Z
Interview by: Martin Bauman By now, Just Blaze really needs no introduction. Producer of Jay Electronica's "Exhibit C", Kendrick Lamar's "Compton", Drake's "Lord Knows", Saigon's "C'mon Baby", Jay-Z's "Show Me What You Got", "Song Cry", and "Girls, Girls, Girls", Kanye West's "Touch The Sky", Memphis Bleek's "Dear Summer", Joe Budden's "Pump It Up", The Diplomats' "I Really Mean It", Erick Sermon's "React", Talib Kweli's "Never Been In Love", and Cam'ron's "Oh Boy" (to name a few), Just Blaze has left his fingerprints all over hip-hop's canon of the past fifteen years. When all is said and done, his body of work holds up against nearly any producer in hip-hop history. Despite his accomplishments, he continues to make music and explore new sounds, most recently collaborating with Baauer to create "Higher" - a trap-wave audio assault. The Come Up Show caught up with Just Blaze for a brief interview after his set with Baauer to talk about his latest single, praise he's received from Big Daddy Kane, and meeting Jay-Z, among other things.
