Young Guru: Piracy And Invention [Video]

Revered as “The Sound of New York,” Young Guru has mixed 10 of Jay-Z’s albums and officially became Jay-Z’s tour D.J. in 2010. “When we study hip-hop we are actually studying the history of piracy. If we go back and study all piracy, we see that most things that were created in the world are a remix of something else.”
  Watch him borrow a beat from Al Green [some may know those drums from “Dead Wrong” and “I Got A Story To Tell” by the Notorious B.I.G.] and Bobby Blue Bland used in Jay’s “Heart of the City [Ain’t No Love]” to show the fine line between art and piracy.
  He is also a leader in adapting to a challenging music business. “It is always vibe over money.”
