Young Guru (Jay-Z’s offical DJ & Engineer) recently partnered with Grammy U to launch a 13 city tour called “Era Of The Engineer”.  The tour which is sponsored by HP and Discmakers, consists of educational lectures that explore the importance of audio engineering in today’s musical climate.  On Friday April 27th, 2013, Young Guru stopped by Emory University here in Atlanta to talk to students and aspiring musicians about everything from engineering to ethics to handling business in the music industry.  The Grammy nominated recording engineer who has recorded 10 out of 11 Jay Z albums, is currently working on a tutorial book about engineering and also has his own line of Headphones dropping soon. While Young Guru was here in Atlanta, I got a chance to chop it up with him about The Era Of The Engineer Tour as well as his take on what it takes to be a dope DJ in 2013.  Check out the interview below:
