U5280: You have worked with an A-List of musicians in the past from Mariah Carey to Jay-Z, who has been your favorite artist too work with?
JB: I have been fortunate enough to work with a lot of talented individuals, when it comes to collaborations I would say Jay is the easiest to work with. Having worked with him on many projects I know what he is going to bring to the table, he knows what i'm going to bring and it just works. We know what we are both capable of pulling off.
U5280: You had a chance to work and produce a track on Kendrick Lamar's new album, what was that like?
JB: That whole album is amazing, and i'm not saying that because I helped work on it. Kendrick is very talented and it was great working with him on Compton, it was mixing old school with new school and making a hit. It went through so many different forms, at the end I sent Dre my samples and he tweaked them had Kendrick do his thing and it was that.
U5280: What does your typical day look like?
JB: It really depends, everyday is different, most of my time I am in the studio. It can be late at night usually going into the early morning. At other times like now, I do a lot of press interviews. I'm always doing something.
U5280: What can we expect on The Big League Tour that you are about to embark on with Baauer?
JB: It's going to be crazy, Baauer is a very talented dude and is on top of his game, being able to mesh the elements of electronica and hip-hop is definetly what fans can expect. We are looking forward to playing in Denver that's for sure.
U5280: Aside from your current tour, what can fans expect from Just Blaze in 2013?
JB: I've got a lot of personal pet projects in the works right now, also working with Dr. Dre on Detox as well as 50's new joint will keep me busy throughout the year.
Just Blaze and Baauer got together with the good folks at Pitchfork to talk about their new joint "Higher". The track is already blazing the airwaves and we can't stop listening to it.
