DJ Babu’s Health Advice: Dude, Don’t Do Drugs. Don’t Punch Premo. Live With Less Pain (Video)

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.”

Behind The Scenes: Nas – “Represent” (Video)

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.
