While promoting his collaborative album ‘PRhyme’ with Detroit emcee Royce Da 5’9, the legendary DJ Premier stopped by ESPN 2’s ‘Highly Questionable’ with Bomani Jones & Dan Le batard. Preemo gave them a few interesting stories from back in the day including his time at the Playboy Mansion with Hugh Hefner.
Final (Part 3) in the HardKnockTV interview series with PRhyme (DJ Premier x Royce da 5’9). Nick Huff Barili getting insight from Royce on life changes he has gone through.
“I felt like there was a dark cloud over my head for a long time. So when I was rapping about death, I was just rhyming about things that were imminent. Stuff that was happening around that time, it was just a dark time for me.”
– Royce da 5’9
Now sober two years, he is grateful for having made it through that period alive and without major jail time. Offering thoughts on where Hip-Hop should be going, Preemo and Royce talk about expectations for the greats. Royce also declared a urge to step into the [Battle Rap] arena and wrap with their favorite tracks on the “PRhyme” album (out now) – including tracks with Jay Electronica and Common.
Here we go with Part 3 of the ‘Hip-Hop-umentary’ – “Raiders Of The Lost Art” featuring PRhyme (DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9). And hey, you can catch up on Parts 1 & 2 below before playing Part 3 above… below. Did you get that?
Okay well get this: the self-titled PRhyme album is out now! Great nuggets of wisdom on ‘the business’ dug up and polished up and laid out for the viewers. Must watch.
F#ck all this talking. N!gga pay up or lay up! – Bumpy Knuckles
Maaaan. WHAT! Bump Knucks knocking knots upside the heads of all fakes. Sorry if your favorite emcee can’t bless Preemo’s beat and booth like this… only the strongest spitters get to do that. No smooth flows from a dude calling himself Bumpy. Nothing but the rough, rugged and RAW!
Having a Part 1 implied at least a Part 2, right? And with as monumental a happening as the formation and release of PRhyme is… you didn’t think we would leave you hanging with just a piece of the story they have to tell…
Did you? C’mon now!
Is your rhyme dope? If it ain’t, it don’t mean sh!t. That’s the bottom line.
– DJ Premier
Let it go, Preem…
– Royce da 5’9
And that’s just what Royce did over the banging Premier track on this full clip visual. The boom, the bap, the beat and the rap. Representing real Hip-Hop. “Courtesy” of PRhyme (DJ Premier & Royce da 5’9). The forthcoming self-titled LP is available for pre-order now (so no need to wait until December 9, 2014; hit the link).
More visuals for PRhyme. The collabo project from Royce Da 5’9 and DJ Premier draws near – December 9, 2014. The Dirty D emcee Royce laces a Preemo beat… Footage coming from everywhere from the ‘skrip’ club to the church. Crazy!
I’m gonna keep boom-bappin’ it…
– DJ Premier
Damn right. Preemo spends every day in the studio. Royce da 5’9 getting it in in the gym [nearly] every day to keep his body, mind and rhymes tight. Grown men do grown things. Grown men in Hip-Hop… might just save this thing. Pay attention to part 1 of this docu-series narrated by Bun B (of UGK) about the lives of the duo behind PRhyme and their giving life to their self-titled project giving new life to old school Hip-Hop style!

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.”
