      Famed hip-hop producer Mr. Green has worked with the likes of Snoop Dogg, A$AP Ferg, Freddie Gibbs, Talib Kwei, KRS-One, Bodega Bamz, Masta Ace, Deniro Farrar, and many more, and hosts the popular show "Live From The Streets" on VICE's Noisey network. For years, the New Jersey native has been releasing instrumental collections in his "Classic Beats" series. “It was originally supposed to be something for artists to freestyle to,” Green explains. “But a lot of the beats ended up becoming real songs on real albums.” "Classic Beats" tracks have been utilized by artists like Jedi Mind Tricks, Matisyahu, Travie McCoy, and members of The Roots, and some of the instrumentals have millions of YouTube views.

      Now, a decade after the series began, Mr. Green is ending it in style with "Last Of The Classic Beats", the fifth and final edition narrated by legendary hip-hop founder DJ Kool Herc. It’s the first album Herc has been involved with in several years, and a rare chance to hear directly from the “Father Of Hip-Hop”
