Miguel stopped by the Hot 97 studios to promo his single “Coffee” as well as his forthcoming album, “Wild Heart.” But since he was there, he talked to the Morning Show crew about what the Met Gala is, what’s going on in his relationship with girlfriend Nazanin Mandi, what was up working with super-producers DJ Premier and Pharrell Williams and Wale and much more.
Sounds, sights and insights from PRhyme on tour across the USA. PRhyme (DJ Premier, Royce Da 5’9), Boldy James, and Your Old Droog make their way through Baltimore, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Boston, New York City…into Preemo’s stomping grounds (Houston). What makes this tour, the folks involved and chemistry special; how they got up with each other for it; the real deal behind the “PRhyme” name & project; stories on the road. Great stuff! Part 1 of 3 embedded above. The next two parts that in sequence are after the jump. Before you are done, you could ‘jump’ over to the prior post (via link below) and grab the “PRhyme” LP.
The legendary DJ Premier gets in full tourist mode while out in Russia for his Boiler Room set. Although he’s stated he’s been there about 4 times in his life, this is the very first time he admittedly allowed himself to be a tourist in Moscow, Russia. Hopefully we get more of these ‘Premier Wuz Here’ videos from other places that “Primo” happens to touch down on ‘The Planet’.
“Mention us with the majors!”

Much good music out today. Like this MoSS jawn featuring AZ, DJ Premier and Joe Budden). ‘Watch son shine’ on his single “Started.” Stream it to your heart’s content FREE above. Follow the link if you want your own copy.
We don’t really have to dwell on the “The Premier” being produced by DJ Premier, do we? But c’mon. Preemo producing your sh!t is pretty much an indicator that an emcee has arrived. In here. However, this video… It’s more like Ryan Bowers’ indication of his willingness to take it there. Some of this you’ll watch with your WTF face on. But that’s okay. It’s a fun approach to boom bap. Who could hate on that?
On tour this side of the ocean, PRhyme (you know, super duo Royce Da 5’9 and Primo) takes the time to bless the net with new visuals. This is for “You Should Know” (featuring Dwele) off the selt-titled LP.
Pick up that new And we been having the cop-that link set up for you. Linked below.
West Coast lyrical king Ras Kass administers the verbal ass kicking over a DJ Premier track. This is what the game is missing from these so-called rappers. BARS!!!!!! Did we catch a slight jab at a certain Atlanta rapper in this one or was it just all in fun? You be the judge! Either way Ras Kass murders his freestyle with Preemo!
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!
