Just Blaze finds himself comparing Jay Z and Eminem when asked who the most talented artist he's worked with is.
As a producer who has gone on to showcase his skills as a beatsmith for well over a decade, New Jersey-born artist Just Blaze has had the opportunity to work alongside some of Hip Hops most respected names including Jay Z and Detroit lyricist Eminem.
Interestingly enough, the producer found himself comparing the two emcees, specifically their work ethic in the studio, during an interview with Vlad TV. Just Blaze was asked if Jay Z is the most talented artist hes worked with and in his attempt to answer that specific question, he began to compare both Jay Z and an artist he feels is equally as talented, Eminem.
I dont know if I would say that Jays the most talented, said the producer. Hes obviously one of thehe may be the most talented. If its not JaySee, its different. I have great experience working with Jay, great experience working with Eminem. But theyre two totally different approaches. Jays approach to work is very much like Jays personality. Hes very laid-back. Kinda just lets me do me. And doesnt really get in the middle too muchWhereas Eminem is very much hands on with the process. So theyre both very creative and super-talented, but just in very different ways.
Just Blaze continued his comparison of the rap Titans while speaking on Eminems scientific approach to his music and the rappers ability to alter the most minuscule of sounds thanks to a keen ear.
Em is there when youre making the beat sometimes, he revealed. Hes there when youre mixing. Hes there mixing and tweaking his own vocals. He hears, he has like dog hearing. So, hell be like Turn this up a half a dB. Turn the bass up like a quarter dB at this frequency. Hes very much of a scientist with it. Where Jay is more so like That sounds good. Cool, Im out.
Just Blaze has worked extensively with both Jay Z and Eminem. Most notably, he produced several tracks on Eminems 2010 album Recovery and played a hand in the creation of Jay Zs Song Cry and the rappers lively, Kingdom Come single Show Me What You Got.
