The LG Experience pka Patrick Harvey, Easy Moe Bee's younger brother, is one of those producers that you would most likely have heard of and heard, but know nothing about him, this was the case on research for this post, I went all over the net looking for a picture or any other info, I went through old magazines like The Source, Rap Sheet and Rap Pages, but came up with nothing.


Patrick started out producing for The Genius aka The GZA and produced 3 tracks on his debut album, Words From The Genius (1991) Who's Your Rhymin Hero, Super Freak and Stay Out of Bars and then went on the produce for Sista Souljah and the Double XX Posse, french group Supreme NTM, Naughty By Nature, Questionmark Asylum, Shaquille O'Neal, Hurricane (former Beastie Boys DJ, who released a solo album in 1995) Boogiemonsters and a few others, but he is probably best know for his ill remix of Big L's-Put It On and his instantly recognizable production for Ill Al Skratch and the One Love remix for Nas, his production often consisted of lovely horns, dope basslines and fat, crisp drums, as you will hear on the compilation provided.

You know what?, I wish I could provide more information, but there honestly isn't any out there, so props to the LG Experience for the dope production and remixes over the years.


Big thanks to aREAL and The Big Sleep for the info and the hook ups and don't forget to check out his blog



Also, I was sent to this dope link from the T.R.O.Y. blog last year, which has the top 10 joints that L.G. has produced (according to him).

R.I.P. Baatin



Sadly, one of the founding members of Detroit's Slum Village (J-Dilla (R.I.P.) T3) and Titus "Baatin*" Glover passed away on August 1st from unknown causes (at this stage), he was only 35, but he left a great catalogue of good music behind, other bloggers and websites have already done justice with well written articles on Baatin's passing and you can read them here:
