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!!”

“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!!
Hip-Hop Wired Gives DJ Premier Some Time To Wax Nostalgic About NYC’s D&D Studios, Guru Memories And More (Video)
Wow. DJ Premier sharing something special with us via sit-down with Hip-Hop Wired. Yeah, take it personal. And we personally give credit to OkayPlayer for the scoop.
“Primo spoke to the grand influence and presence of the studio and former of house of D&D Records in the golden era, the late, great Guru’s writing method, all of NYC’s golden-era luminaries that graced that janky booth on West 37th with their greatness–i.e Nas, Biggie, Hov, KRS, Jeru amongst countless others – as well as how their classic Nice & Smooth collaboration “DWYCK” came together. So go ahead and get learned to the legacy of D&D with DJ Premier.”
A fist fight? Guru and Primo? WHAT??? Watch the clip!
This mixtape was released on DJ Premier’s birthday (March 21). Please take a moment to appreciate one of our best!

So, here’s how it’ll go: You’ll get this banged into your skull (via the ear hole) and it’ll stay on your mind and your head will continue to nod. Simple.
That beat: by Fizzy Womack (aka Lil Fame of M.O.P.) and Lucky Tatt’s lyricism drives this “Celebrate” – delivered to us (above) in visual form with a DJ Premier cameo at Headquarterz studio.
Primo gave an interview to OFIVE in France. Speaking on past and present collabos, the new Hip-Hop generation, and a return to Hip-Hop fundamentals – “Dope beats and dope rhymes!”
DJ Premier remixes the club jam “Latch” (featuring Sam Smith) by UK duo Disclosure. Premo drags the speed down from drag race to slow drag; mellowing out the track for an unexpected (until you remember Preme is a pro) pleasure. Get the track on Disclosure’s “Settle” (The Remixes) LP via the link below.
