Anyone with even a passing interest in hip-hop has heard the name Just Blaze shouted over an old soul sample or a triumphant horn crescendo on everything from Cam’ron bangers like “I Really Mean It” and “Oh Boy” to Jay-Z’s much overlooked deep cut “Soon You’ll Understand” and the neo-hip-house of Joe Budden’s “Fire (Yes, Yes Y’all).” Tonight, he joins Ayers and Eleven for the Rub’s 10th anniversary party, helping the Brooklyn monthly celebrate a decade of irresistible music, sweaty nights, and hungover mornings. Pregame with the recording of Just’s 2010 Fool’s Gold Holiday Party set and his interview on the latest installment of Rub Radio.
