GGN: Nemo Hoes Talks To Preemo About His Musical History, Current PRhyme Project, And Future Directions (Video)
Before Snoop Dogg was rocking with Dr. Dre… Snoop Rock-ski was ripping over the “Just To Get A Rep” beat by the (drum roll)… DJ Premier! True. And now you know this ep’s special guest. Watch. Of course, we don’t have to tell you to stay tuned for Stormy Frontz weather.
Legendary producer/DJ Premier finally sits down at the GGN news desk. They talk about the PRhyme project with Royce Da 5’9. They talk about working together in the past and future. Preemo also touches on the possibility of getting back into the studio with Nas. All this and more u-funkybitch-u!!!
Okay, deep breaths. Twenty years is a long enough wait. So here goes: I have kept word of this personal project I have been working on from pretty much EVERYBODY (JayForce and my Beatz & Lyrics fam included); partly because it means so much to me but also because timing is crucial…for most everything!
This a reboot (e.g. redo, redux, reffixx mixtape… I actually call it a Rebooth) of the Group Home classic “Livin’ Proof.” Ever since this came out about 20 years ago, I have wondered what my favorite DJ Premier beats off that album would sound under verses from emcees I know and admire. Well, viola! Check out this work of love (TOTALLY FREE, of course) – The “Livin Proof” (Rebooth LP) from BoneBreaker Studios, featuring various artists over the original music by DJ Premier.
Check it out. Download and pass it on if you like. I LOVE IT (but then again, I’ve got 20 years of bias built up).
(What’s crazy is… several artists on the project – including the homie SkyBlew – were barely on the planet when Group Home dropped the original plate!)
Saigon can go in on a track. Know that. For this one, the track is by DJ Premier. Excited yet? Okay… guest lyricals by BIG DADDY KANE! And Premo ackin’ a damn fool on the scratch to take us out. This… and Saigon has that “GSNT3: The Troubled Times of Brian Carenard” dropping September 30, 2014, nowwww you can lose your sh!t.
Fix your coat. Prepare for 40 below spit.
– Royce Da 5’9
Woooo! That’s cold. How cold? Google 40 degrees below zero (Fahrenheit or Celsius, it don’t f#ckin matter… COLD)! Cold like the rhymes and cuts you get on this quick-n-dirty vid “PRhyme” – an ultimate collab between DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9. Does this mean they are working on a project together?
Hit play now! If you don’t know, you’re slow. Catch up…with DJ Premier…coming at you with a mix from across the water! UK broadcaster BBC Radio 1 with something 1xtra special! An hour of the Premier DJ from the states. Always cool when a blends with the source cuts (y’all felt Jigga and Biz getting ready to drop at the start, didn’t you?)… Smorgasbord of good music across several genres. An hour strong on quality DJ’ing on deck for you. Diplo and Friends welcome DJ Premier!
Dope lyricism. Dope beat. Hear that? That’d be Long Island’s own Diabolic spitting to that lovely DJ Premier sound. The single, “Diabolical Sound,” was leaked from Diabolic’s forthcoming LP, “Fightin Words.” The LP is set to drop September 16, 2014, but is available for pre-order at iTunes now. Features on the LP include Sean Price, Vinnie Paz, Celph Titled, RA the Rugged Man, and more.
“This whole place emotional, wake up & find out some dude Frank Ocean’d you!” – Lil Fame
That line from Lil Fame aka ‘Fizzy Womack’ is hilarious! Hahaaaaaa! One of my favorite hardcore hip hop duos of all-time hailing from Brownsville Brooklyn release some lyrical murder over a classic ‘Tears For Fears’ sample. We’ve been banging this new ‘187’ single produced by Lil Fame on the Beatz & Lyrics radio show, but now we have the new visuals to accompany the new banger featuring a brief cameo from Treach of Naughty By Nature, Smif-N-Wessun, & a number of other brothas reppin’ those Brooklyn blocks.
Be on the lookout for Billy Danziene & Lil Fame’s upcoming project “Street Certified” executive produced by DJ Premier that’s dropping October 31st. Just in time for Halloween…..Now ‘Ante Up’ suckaz!!!

Well, DJ Premier was wearing a mask at the time. Hahaaaa! Kid still caught a suPREMO beatdown though. You get that at most venues for eff’n with the DJ while he’s working; but when he’s rolling with the GangStarr Foundation…you get EFF’D UP (drugs or no)! Let DJ Babu (of Dilated Peoples) tell it though.
“It was…quite an experience.”
– DJ Babu
There’s a YouTube studios? Hmm. Well, what’s really cool is the dopeness that’s about to come out of there. Apparently, they reviewed more than eighty finalists’ video treatments to pick one worthy director’s entry…to do a video for the single off Nas’ “Illmatic” entitled “Represent.” It’s been 20 years, but rather than dwell on what took so long, join us in anticipating how this is so right for Hip-Hop. Check out the behind-the-scenes vid above. And you can pick up Nas’ “Illmatic XX” via the link below.
Amazing! Dilated Peoples (Evidence, Rakaa and DJ Babu) do the work over a DJ Premier production. “Good As Gone” is the first single from their forthcoming “Directors of Photography” album (due out August 12, 2014). You can pre-order the LP via the link below.
“When it comes to lyrics, we don’t half step. D.I.T.C. for life!” – DJ Premier
Uh oh, time for a real emcee to get it in again. Next up ‘In The Booth’: MC ‘Andre the Giant’ aka A.G.! For Session 4, DJ Premier has A.G. featured; repping the legendary Bronx Duo Showbiz & A.G. and D.I.T.C. Watch how dude gets down!
Checking in with this vid for a single off their “Barrel Brothers” album (out now), Skyzoo and Torae give us “The Aura” (produced by DJ Premier and Antman Wonder). They rode this boom bap track the way an emcee is supposed to.
It’s out. NOW! The NYC elite D.I.T.C. crew launched a new website AND have released a mixtape to boot! You’ve been seeing the leak posts. You’ve heard the producers on deck remixing for this: Alchemist, Bink!, Apollo Brown, DJ Premier, 9th Wonder, Marco Polo… Sure, but did you know that D.I.T.C. Entertainment is offering “The Remix Project” for FREE?!?! Download your copy NOW (link below)!

“Dope rhymes don’t come easy. It’s a skill.” – DJ Premier
Philly! Beard Gang! ‘The General’ Jakk Frost in the booth with a cold shoulder for haters. Premo on the boards piping the beat into the m-i-c. There’s likely a sign on the studio door that reads: SERIOUS SPITTERS ONLY! That’s what this Session 3 is. That’s what all ‘Bars in the Booth’ sessions are.
“I love a hater. I hug ‘em now and hurt ‘em later!” – Dres
Yes! Primo has another ‘Bars in the Booth’ session out. This time Dres (D-R-E-S) got in the booth, got comfortable…destroyed it. This is Hip-Hop: A DJ and an emcee moving the crowd (this includes you) and melting mics. We got the video above. The proof and the truth.
“Thanks to Dres from Black Sheep for being the next up on ‘Bars in the Booth.’ He killed it. We got more ‘Bars in the Booth’ coming soon, so subscribe to the channel so you do not miss a thing. Press Play!!”
– DJ Premier
“You done stepped in some guano!” – The Lady of Rage
The launch of DJ Premier’s new all-Hip-Hop-all-the-time site, PremierWuzHere.com, would probably be enough of an event for real heads … but amp that past 10 when he concurrently drops a jewel featuring The Lady of Rage – “Chemical Burn” to celebrate. Release the Kraken!!
