Dual Threat: Producer/ Emcee Audible Doctor Talks Upcoming Projects, Sampling & More


Audible Doctor is a beast with the mic and the production, laying the groundwork for 50 Cent’s “This Is Murder Not Music” and Joell Ortiz’s “Battle Cry“, as well as holding his own as an emcee on his own tracks assisted by the likes of Consequence, Bumpy Knuckles and Guilty Simpson.

The Brown Bag AllStar is dropping his self-produced “Can’t Keep The People Waiting” EP sometime in the next month or two, and the first few appetizers likely have fans of boom bap hip hop agreeing they can’t wait much longer for the main course. I caught up with Audible Doctor in his studio and discussed the project, what it is about a sample that catches his attention, and a recent close call that could have turned into a sampling nightmare.

Audible also shared the story of the first time he met his all-time favorite producer, and just days before Your Old Droog, once rumored to be Nas rhyming incognito, made his big reveal, AD scooped me on his own experience with Droog.

Watch the interview after the jump.
