Making of "Hip Hop" By DJ Khaled, Nas, Scarface (produced by J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League with scratches by DJ Premier)

Ever wanted to know how J.U.S.T.I.C.E League get their beats to sound so awesome?

Here is an insight into their methods and processes during the making of their epic new record "Hip Hop" from DJ Khaled's new album "Kiss The Ring"

What does DJ Khaled Actually Do?

Some people wonder what DJ Khaled actually does on his records. For instance, on this new record "Hip Hop", J.U.S.T.I.C.E League make the beat, Nas & Scarface provide vocals and DJ Premier adds some neat scratches. 

Khaleds role is actually Executive Producer.

This is not the same job as a 'beatmaker'. This is more like the role of an old school 'band' producer. His job is to provide the vision of the finished record and make sure everyone is playing their part. He provides the guidance and direction, and tells each artist/producer what to do and when to do it. 

And when it comes to providing vision and energy, their is no one better than DJ Khaled. After all - without him this record might never have been made!
