Check out this video of DJ Premier’s newly formed Live Band rehearsing out in ‘the land of the rising sun.’ Konichiwa from Japan for those of y’all that don’t know. Preemo doesn’t have a name for the band as of yet, but he’s expressed on twitter how he wants the fans help in coming up with a good name that doesn’t involve any Gangstarr or DJ Premier references. I think they should use the name ‘Robbin Hood Theory’ but that’s just my 2-cents. Anyway…. Make sure you tweet to him directly at @REALDJPREMIER with #NamePreemosNewBand hastag, or head to www.premierwuzhere.com and/or leave comments below the video posting. Good to see DJ Premier & the crew released this video of them practicing. Most most rap groups & artists these days don’t take pride in their work & got it confused with the Allen Iverson practice theory.
NBA Allstar Weekend takes place in Brooklyn New York from February 13 to February 15th of this year. Many celebrities, groupies, athletes & fans will be there, but the last few years has shown that when the stars come out so do the goons. Check out this new freestyle from Maino, the self-proclaimed ‘King Of Brooklyn’, over the Gangstarr classic ‘Just To Get A Rep’. I guess people better tuck their chains in next weekend because some things may not have changed in Crooklyn.
The legendary DJ Premier continues his ‘Bars In The Booth’ series this time inviting Skyzoo x Torae to get busy over some his production. The Barrel Brothers over another DJ Premier track. Gotta Love it! On a side note DJ Premier’s legendary D&D Studios just closed down. Check out some more info from his ‘PremierWuzHere’ site.
You plan for the unexpected as best you can, and it still happens. But if you are lucky, that’s a good thing!
PRhyme, also known as DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9,” made their way into the STASHED studio as we were interviewing Phonte. Rather than having them wait, the three old friends all joined in one long conversation. Among the topic discussed include their history together, being grown men in Hip-Hop, and possibly working together on a new project.
It’s a happy half-hour of eavesdropping you will gladly spend with Phonte (Phontigallo-tigallo-tigallo), DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9…if you simply click play above.
Another hot session in the Boiler Room (we have more posted here). In this one, DJ Premier & Royce Da 5’9 (moving together as PRhyme) take Adrian Younge – and all of us – on a trip through their self-titled album. Dope performance!
Pick up that new “PRhyme” LP download whenever you like (linked below).
Ever find yourself wishing that the real emcees and deejays would stand the f#ck up and take Hip-Hop back to the path it’s supposed to be on. If you ran across such an emcee, such a deejay, would you be ready to pass out from the head nodding. Well strap in true believer. We’re taking this whole sh!t back to ’92 with DJ Premier, Royce Da 5’9 and “PRhyme Time” (off that new PRhyme LP; out now).
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!
DJ Premier And Royce da 5’9 Talk About The Formation Of PRhyme, The Album, Guru (RIP), Eminem And More (Video)
Royce da 5’9 and Preemo, see, formed this new duo PRhyme and are set to drop a self-titled debut on December 9, 2014. Besides themselves, the plate will be loaded with goodness from Ab-Soul, Mac Miller, Jay Electronica, ScHoolboy Q, Killer Mike and Slaughterhouse. in a word: Damn! But before all that, hear the two talk about the formation of PRhyme, the LP, and much much more.
Question: Is Slaughterhouse still getting down like that? Answer: “Y’all Ready Know” (produced by DJ Premier)! This single from the fearless foursome will appear on the forthcoming “Shady XV” compilation project (available for pre-order at iTunes now). Visuals above, links below. You know what to do now…
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.
