In this episode of the Do The Math Podcast we sit down with Seattle’s own, the legendary Grammy nominated producer, album cut assassin and blap architect Jake One. Jake has a particularly interesting perspective on the Tribal Productions crew, seeing them from their absolute genesis point as kids performing at Garfield High School talent shows to putting out music locally. We also talk about Jake’s start in beatmaking, learning from Vitamin D, digging for samples and making the Conmen tapes with Mr. Supreme, Conception Records, hooking up with Minneapolis’s Rhymesayers crew, Jake’s involvement with Mayer Hawthorne and his Tuxedo project, Snare Jordan and a bunch of other topics. Official Town Business.
