Any one who knows hip hop, knows the name Just Blaze. His track record is beyond impressive and his style continues to push the limits of the genre. Blaze recently sat down with Vlad TV to discuss his favorite producers in the game and what inspires him.
“Right now, I would definitely say Mike WiLL,” said Just Blaze. “I mean, he’s like [every] record on the radio. Mustard is super dope. I like DJ Mustard. He’s got this like unorthodox slap that I love. The bounce, that whole new Cali bounce is just crazy. Aside from those two, probably Young Chop. It’s like Chop has—it’s crazy unorthodox swing that’s super aggressive and makes you want to just punch somebody. I would probably put him in the third. Yeah, definitely.”
Blaze went on to discuss what it takes, in his mind, to stay relevant in this ever changing game:
“I mean, there are very few producers that maintain longevity for more than two or three years…It can be a lot of things that contribute to the rise and fall of a producer,” said Blaze. “I think A, for me, the reason I think I’ve been able to maintain and always maintain a good wave over the course of these past 15 years is I’ve never really pigeon-holed myself into a sound or a style. Or even kind of like a genre.”
