Beef Jones hosts a sitdown with DJ Premier & Roc-A-Fella’s Kareem “Biggs” Burke. They discuss Jay Z’s classic “Reasonable Doubt” album. The video starts with a lot of prelim (some setup is going on); as this is a live online discussion forum while. The meat of the discussion is set out around the 11-minute mark. Check it out.

Interesting insights on Preem’s production process and some early history at The Roc (like who was the label’s first signee).

Torii Wolf – “1st” (Prod. By DJ Premier)

How can DJ Premier bring so much boom and bap to an alternative R&B track? Play this new Torii Wolf, and you’ll find yourself going, “Oh, like THAT!”

Torii Wolf, a singer-songwriter and musician from Wantagh, New York who traded coasts–bouncing around West Coast cities and enhanced herself artistically; shunning categories, confinement, and convention. Torii also just happens to be the first female artist to have her entire project (the forthcoming album entitled “Flow Riiot”) produced by Preemo. “Torii has such a weird, wicked style,” Premier offers. “It’s just very left field—reminiscent of a Bjork or something like that. She is so unique and versatile; she writes, sings and is an accomplished guitarist and drummer. But image-wise, there is no comparison. Subject-wise, Torii is in a whole different place.”

The versatility Premier hints at is evident on Torii Wolf’s first single, the aptly-titled, “1st,” a war-torn and wistful ode to unrequited love and commitment that ultimately leaves more questions than answers, as she ponders “what does it take to keep you from running away.” Digging into his past catalog, Premier reshuffles the deck on a Rakka Iriscience vocal sample from his “Good As Gone” production from Dilated Peoples’ “Directors Of Photography” album to create another spellbinding scratch-chorus “I’ve seen the last come first, I’ve seen the first last.”

Hmm. Preemo did an entire album with this girl. That should tell you enough about her pedigree. Respect Torii Wolf and this “1st” you’re listening to.

Macklemore x Lewis – “Buckshot” feat. DJ Premier x KRS-One

hqdefault

Stop the presses on every “they ain’t real” story you want to put out on Ben Haggerty (pka Macklemore) & Ryan Lewis. At least for now. Why? This “Buckshot” team up with DJ Premier and KRS-ONE. This has got to be the most awesome olive branch held out to Hip-Hop heads in quite some time. How real is this? Let Preemo speak on it…

Macklemore’s manager reached out to my manager (Ian) and told him that they wanted me to hook up a scratch sequence to tie in the lyrics that Ben wrote. Ryan did the track and we got on the phone to discuss the theme about their younger days running the streets and tagging graffiti. I draw as well so it made total sense! After I sent my parts back, they asked if I knew how to get in touch with Kris (KRS-ONE). I reached out to Kris’ wife and since he is a dope graffiti artist as well, he was the perfect choice and he laced the verse overnight. The whole combination made it a complete jam for the history books.
DJ Premier

In a word…boom! Take a listen above. You can pre-orderThis Unruly Mess I’ve Made” (due out February 26, 2016) below.

Yuna – “Places To Go” (Prod. By DJ Premier)

The way it started…was definitely ‘alternative’… then seconds later, BOOM! Producer Preemo drops in with his trademark hook-sample scratches and it’s so on! Check out Malaysian singer Yuna’s “Places To Go” above, and read what she has to say about all this below.

“Places to Go” is a song about when you’re growing into the person that you’re meant to be. Sometimes you go through all these things that will change you as a person and you find it hard to deal with all of these challenges. I was truly honored to work with legendary DJ and producer DJ Premier. I still can’t believe I have a track with Premier. It really is one of the best songs I’ve written in a long time.

Dope! You can pre-order Yuna’s full-length, “Chapters” (due out May 20, 2016), from the Store on her website here.

PRhyme – “Courtesy” (Full-Length Video)

Okay, so before when we put up a PRhyme visual post for “Courtesy” we were letting go a ‘full clip’… as in click-clack-pow-pow-brrraakk. This is the full video. The one before was a less than 2-minute teaser. He is the entire visual presentation off the “PRhyme” album from Royce and Preemo (out now).

Fisher – “Fish Over Premier” (Premier Fish) [Prod. DJ Premier]

Now, without a doubt, DITC’s got production on lock solidly; but if their newbie emcee Fisher gets the chance to rhyme over Preemo prouction… come on. Why stand in his way? This “Fish Over Premier” (Premier Fish) is just a one-time thing, right? Ha! With lyrical skills like these? Don’t be surprised if this hook-up happens again (like maybe on Fisher’s forthcoming “GODmc” project)!

The 2015 BET Cyphers: Def Squad Reunited (Video)(Video)

082615-shows-hha-cypher-2015-def-squad-Redman-Erick-Sermon-Keith-Murray-7

The headline says it all; like its own byline. Did you see the Cyphers this year? Always the best part of the BET Hip-Hop Awards. We expect a ‘wow’ moment or two from the Awards’ broadcast; and a Cypher is a good bet for a source. Well, there was [at least] a BIG one in this year’s – Erick Sermon, Keith Murray and Redman spitting with DJ Scratch taking the Preemo spot (see what we did there?) for the set. Def Squad comes back to life for the night! Good to see.

Click the pic above to start with the Squad. Got the rest of this year’s Cyphers linked after the jump.

Papoose – “Hold The City Down” (Prod. By DJ Premier)

38b53b34d415cd507040be2c4091004c

Is it Preem’s beats that make emcees beast out on a track; or is it that he only allows beast mode emcees to bless his beats? So far, the result has been win-win. Latest exhibit of that: This new Papoose jawn “Hold The City Down.” Dope! Plus, a bonus… FREE download!

DOWNLOAD: PAPOOSE – HOLD THE CITY DOWN (PROD. BY DJ PREMIER)

Hip-Hop/Jazz: DJ Premier x The BADDER – “BPATTER” (Video)

The power of a big band jazz act distilled down to five funky, fired up pieces – DJ Premier and his new band, The BADDER – giving y’all this work: “BPATTER” (the ‘P’ is kinda silent, the way Preemo says it, but not really how he plays it). So, we have Preem on the wheels, Lenny “The Ox” Reece on the skins, Brady Watt on the bass, Mark Williams on the bone, and Takuya Kuroda on the trumpet. Check it out. Nice!

Anderson .Paak Breaks Down His Verse On “Animals” Off Dr. Dre’s “Compton” LP (Video)

One of my favorite songs off of Dr. Dre’s new “Compton” album is “Animals” produced by DJ Premier featuring this artist right here!

Up and coming West Coast Rapper/Singer Anderson .Paak was featured heavily on Dr. Dre’s latest album “Compton” which was inspired by the new film “Straight Outta Compton.” Anderson performs and provides the meaning behind an important track to him on the album, “Animals” which was produced by Dr. Dre and DJ Premier.

Sidney Max – “Angry Birds Friends: Here Come the Birds” feat. Dres (Prod. By DJ Premier) [Video]

Awwwww, this is beyond adorable! Blessed enough to have got on Dres’ (of Black Sheep) Facebook friend list, I caught wind of every tidbit of news on the development of this Sidney Max project. Sidney is Dres’ son; and Daddy’s got his boy coloring inside the Hip-Hop lines beautifully with this “Here Come the Birds” (produced by DJ Premier). This is wonderful on so many levels… You can’t debate it!
