New York’s Finest. On “Mo Money, Mo Murder” AZ and Nas benefit from DR Period, one of the most talented and prolific producers in hip-hop history. DR flipped The O’Jays’ song “Cry No More” for the beat, but his sample selection is very diverse. For Public Enemy’s “He Got Game,” DR turned to the classic Buffalo Springfield song “For What It’s Worth.” The Divine Ruler’s variety spawned work with everyone from P.E. to M.O.P., Queen Latifah to Cormega, as well as soundtracks for several feature films. In other words, DR’s resume is crazy. Hit the skip for more on DR, and keep a look out for AZ’s DOD2 due out this year!
