Video: See Rick Rubin Return To His Old Dorm Where He Founded Def Jam

posted by Oscar October 19, 2014

History has long told us about how Rick Rubin, one of the few remaining super producers in the music world today, founded his label in his dorm room at NYU but it’s hard to imagine that he’d never been back ever since leaving upon graduation. Rolling Stone Films arranged for Rubin to finally visit room 712 after some 30 years and he gives all a look at how Def Jam came to life.

The whole thing is a fantastic look at how one of Hip Hop’s pillars were built. Check it out above.

Video: Eminem’s Zane Lowe Interview [Complete]

posted by Oscar November 21, 2013

Earlier in the year we got a super informative interview from Kanye West when he crossed the pond to talk to Zane Lowe about his views on the current state of Hip Hop and his new album, Yeezus. Today we’re getting a bit more from the famous radio broadcaster who sat with Eminem, the latter talking to him about what’s new from the Detroit emcee.

Em’s attempt to top the Yeezy interview and the Ricky Bobby reference makes for a good start in this new series. Also, there’s some interesting stuff with Eminem talking about how he went about approaching this album, giving more details on some of the tracks, and working with Rick Rubin.
