That was my initial reaction when my boy Ocka hit me with the link to the six videos below. Turns out Dante Ross is the behind-the-scenes dude responsible for signing some of Hip Hop's biggest artists ever, including De La Soul and Brand Nubian. He went from A&R at Tommy Boy to producing songs for artists such as Cypress Hill and Slick Rick.

Then he flipped his style in the mid-90's and was partly responsible for the 3x platinum Everlast album 'Whitey Ford Sings The Blues' and then... get this... the 20x platinum Santana album 'Put Your Lights Out' (scoring himself a couple Grammys in the process).

The videos below are part interview, part history lesson and part fucking around - but always entertaining.
