MC Eiht – “Got That” feat. DJ Premier (Prod. By Brenk Sinatra)

The push for that forthcoming “Which Way Iz West” is on. MC Eiht is out with another one. And he has the homie DJ Preemo with him doing the most on the Brenk Sinatra-produced track “Got That”… but not how you think. And WHY isn’t Premier scratching on this??? Well…

I’ve loved this track ever since the rough draft. When I was mixing the song down, Eiht kept saying “Got That” after the verses and I was going to put some scratches on it. I’m sitting at the board, saying the three lines to myself because I felt like it would fit in the blanks. I decided to go in the booth to record it and see if it would blend with the song. I’m not a fan of my own voice so I sent it back to Eiht for approval and his replay was literally GEAH.

Miguel – “2 Lovin U” (Prod. By DJ Premier) [Video]

Man hellyeah, HELLYEAH! Miguel and DJ Premier HAD to do a video for that “2 Lovin U” banger! Straightforward shooting in its approach and its messaging. Not subtle at all. It’s like if Michael Jackson (RIP) consulted on the video and said put some it don’t matter if it’s “Black Or White” (or gay or straight or Muslim…) in there. Get into this and groove with it. You KNOW you want to!

Miguel – “2 Lovin U” (Prod. By DJ Premier)

Wowwww…DJ Premier is an executive producer of VH1’s “The Breaks” series AND he is scoring the entire series. BANGING!!

Oh, okay, this post is supposed to be about Miguel on the Preemo-produced “2 Lovin U” song. And how do we know it’s a track by Preemo? It’s the signature scratching baby. You hear those ‘damn’ samples scratched into the hook? Well, the rough, eventually shelved, early version of this song was called “Damned.” So, naturally, Preem scratched the ‘damn’ thing the f**k up like you know he do!

They decided to keep that element. Dope music was the result. Nice collaboration!

Busta Rhymes – “Grinch 2000” feat. Jim Carrey (Prod. By DJ Premier)

maxresdefault

Ha! This is fun! Busta Rhymes this “Grinch 2000” for the “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” soundtrack back in 2000. Even got a feature on it from the film’s star, Jim Carrey. Produced by DJ Premier to boot. So how could this have not made it onto the final release? Who knows? But now it gets dropped, and appreciated. Happy Holidays!

DJ Premier On The State Of New York Rap (Video)

Preemo ONLY plays the bangers! That’s his lane, and it is not for the wack. And he is DEFINITELY qualified to be a gatekeeper for real Hip-Hop. To be clear, DJ Premier is not hating on that artist you like, but if he or she is wack… Oh well.

That sounds harsh. Preem explains it better. How he has always been, what he is into nowadays and more in the sit-down above.

A documentary with Jay Z and Nas is in the works, and DJ Premier also has a solo album—‘Last Session at 320’—on the way. He also discusses Desiigner, Dave East, Young M.A., and how he’s stayed relevant for multiple decades.

MC Eiht – “Runn The Blocc” feat. MayLAy (DJ Premier Remix)

Yessir! Brenk Sinatra, DJ Premier and MC Eiht have got history with each other AND on here. Let’s see what’s popping above with this “Runn The Blocc” joint stream. And check out Eiht chopping (with XXL Mag in an interview) below.

When I originally got the beat from Brenk (Sinatra), rather than do something that glorified hustling, I wanted to drop something more along the storyline of how it’s so stressful in the streets. Then Premier sent MayLAy and I a beat and it just fit my vision of how the game used to be perfectly; knowing hustling is still a necessary evil and having to deal with everything that comes with it. Preemo heard the final product and said it needed to be on the album; so now it’s official.

DJ Premier – “Tiimmy Turner” (Preemix)

dj-premier-flips-desiigners-timmy-turner-w-south-park-sample

Okay, so a significant portion of the blog-o-sphere considers this rehash of Desiigner’s “Tiimmy Turner” a ‘shots fired’ situation…the shots being let off by the legend that did the joint, DJ Premier. Listen for yourself, and make up your own mind. But the track bangs (with that “Twilight Zone” rip in there). And dropping in that South Park sample, “TIMMY!” Well, that’s just… dope!! Haaaa!

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.
