The Legendary Man Behind The Board : T-Ray interview in Elemental (2004)

July 25, 2007

Long interview with a very overlooked producer, Todd Ray by Austin The Judge Wheeler. This low profile guy made classics for Lord Finesse, Artifacts, Cypress Hill (according to this interview at least !), Double X Posse, as well as Joe Burgos aka Fatal (another rapper whose album for WEA never came out…) Those unfamiliar with his music should also check the great http://www.canibringmygat.com/2007/07/12/t-ray/ for more mp3. I’m not really buying his story about discovering Nas though…
