“You done stepped in some guano!” – The Lady of Rage
The launch of DJ Premier’s new all-Hip-Hop-all-the-time site, PremierWuzHere.com, would probably be enough of an event for real heads … but amp that past 10 when he concurrently drops a jewel featuring The Lady of Rage – “Chemical Burn” to celebrate. Release the Kraken!!
Hip-Hop Wired Gives DJ Premier Some Time To Wax Nostalgic About NYC’s D&D Studios, Guru Memories And More (Video)
Wow. DJ Premier sharing something special with us via sit-down with Hip-Hop Wired. Yeah, take it personal. And we personally give credit to OkayPlayer for the scoop.
“Primo spoke to the grand influence and presence of the studio and former of house of D&D Records in the golden era, the late, great Guru’s writing method, all of NYC’s golden-era luminaries that graced that janky booth on West 37th with their greatness–i.e Nas, Biggie, Hov, KRS, Jeru amongst countless others – as well as how their classic Nice & Smooth collaboration “DWYCK” came together. So go ahead and get learned to the legacy of D&D with DJ Premier.”
A fist fight? Guru and Primo? WHAT??? Watch the clip!
This mixtape was released on DJ Premier’s birthday (March 21). Please take a moment to appreciate one of our best! This mix was originally performed live for the Devil’s Pie DJ Premier Tribute party on March 21, 2012. Devil’s Pie is a soul party focused on the curation of timeless music through skillful djing. It occurs every Thursday at the Wolf & Crane Bar in the Little Tokyo neighborhood of Los Angeles.

So, here’s how it’ll go: You’ll get this banged into your skull (via the ear hole) and it’ll stay on your mind and your head will continue to nod. Simple.
That beat: by Fizzy Womack (aka Lil Fame of M.O.P.) and Lucky Tatt’s lyricism drives this “Celebrate” – delivered to us (above) in visual form with a DJ Premier cameo at Headquarterz studio.
Primo gave an interview to OFIVE in France. Speaking on past and present collabos, the new Hip-Hop generation, and a return to Hip-Hop fundamentals – “Dope beats and dope rhymes!”
DJ Premier remixes the club jam “Latch” (featuring Sam Smith) by UK duo Disclosure. Premo drags the speed down from drag race to slow drag; mellowing out the track for an unexpected (until you remember Preme is a pro) pleasure. Get the track on Disclosure’s “Settle” (The Remixes) LP via the link below.

Our girl “D.Y.” aka “Dynasty” returns with a brand new video for ‘Street Music’ that was directed by Dustin Devars & partly shot here in Atlanta during the A3C festival & in her current base of residence in Tampa. Produced by the legendary DJ Premier. The song appears on Dynasty’s debut album ‘A Star In Life’s Clothing’ that’s available now.
Great visuals coming with a dope new Dynasty album. Nice!
‘Check out my brand new video that we shot while in Paris, France!’ – Dynasty
DJ Premier chats with WM40A about Jay Z’s “Pound Cake” verse (we’ve posted on that joint and remixes like the one The L.O.X. did on here), his beatmaking, and a long hoped for collabo LP with Nas at the A3C music festival in Atlanta. Really hope you made it out to some of A3C at least, or got to experience it somehow (shared videos, Instagram/Twitter feeds… something). Great event… for the culture, classic moments, and scoops like this!
Attention emcees, two things: (1) DJ Premier does NOT influence the BET Cypher selections AND (2) he WILL be scratching while you are freestyling if you get in the Cypher (that’s Hip-Hop; get your skill up)!
The legendary producer and Whoo Kid talk about how real it can get for a DJ out here, conflict and music making in Hip-Hop (including confessing that the original version of KRS-ONE’s “Outta Here” was way more heavy with PERSONAL name-naming disses), his coming up in the game (starting at age 19 in the late 80s), his experiences with Tupac EARLY in his career (literally tearing South Carolina up), all kinds of momentoes he has, and so much more. Great interview!
“I’m an emcee. I don’t rap, but I know how to control a crowd…” – DJ Premier
Challenge! Well, more like historical clash of sound at the livest party in Cambridge (Massachusetts, USA). Pete Rock and DJ Premier… getting started in their face-off right away spinning hits on one another’s behalf. The scene is classic. Click play and rock with the people at the party rocked by these masters.
How appropriate for Mass Appeal channel to have Premo on deck to give personal history like this. With “Mass Appeal” spinning in the background, and DJ Premier talking to the lens, we get the straight dope from one of the dopest. Click play and learn about the creation, evolution and finalization of the Gang Starr insignia and how Premier and Gang Starr fam KNEW “Mass Appeal” was hot before radio and the world would prove them right. R.I.P. to Keithy E the Guru.
DJ Premier debuted this banger on his Sirius XM radio show last night & when I heard it I was going nuts over the ill track & accompanied by the lyricism & flow from both Fat Joe & Action Bronson. This joint bangs! It’s a nice little treat before the ‘Don Cartegena’ aka ‘Joey Crack’ is set to release his “Darkside 3″ project in the very near future before he goes on a short vacation for income tax evasion. In the meantime I’m gonna bang this joint out on my radio show tonight because this is what that gritty real hip hop is supposed to sound like. Fiyah!
“F#ck 2nd… n!gga I’m out for UNO!”
Rapsody keeping it so Hip-Hop! This is the “Kingship” (produced by DJ Premier) single off her forthcoming Gangsta Grillz Mixtape entitled “She Got Game” (hosted by DJ Drama) due out August 20, 2013. Imagine the atmosphere of the advance listening party with this mixtape playing and ‘The Great Young Guru x 9th Wonder Debate’ going on on the side. Wow.
DJ Premier Speaks On The 10 Crack Commandments, Defending His People and His Porn, and Golden Era Hip-Hop On The Combat Jack Show (Video)
Premier is definitely ready for Combat! DJ Premier is on this episode of The Combat Jack Show. The Golden Era producer/DJ is up for a three-part show post. Part one above (with recollection of how Biggie’s “Ten Crack Commandments” came to be). Part two documents DJ Premier defending his friend Mister Cee in light of the controversy with regard to his sexual orientation and alleged exploits… and talking about trading porn tapes with him. Then Primo and The CJS crew get into clowning about who they would hit (Sophia Loren… check)! Part three steers the convo back to Hip-Hop (in late 80s – 90s)… discussing the standards of The Golden Era. Parts 2 & 3 after the jump.
