DJ Premier Interview with KnockSteadyTV

N.O.R.E. to Remake Gang Starr’s “Dwyck” on New Solo Album

Yesterday (August 25) on XXL’s UStream show, Spotlight, N.O.R.E. came by the XXL offices and announced that he’ll be working with DJ Premier to remake Gang Starr’s classic track, “Dwyck.”
While sharing some nutcrackers with the XXL staff, one half of C-N-N revealed that for his upcoming solo project, currently titled Superthug, he’ll be collaborating with Premo for an update of “Dwyck,” which appeared on Gang Starr’s seminal 1994 release Hard to Earn. On the original, the late Guru was joined by Nice & Smooth to ride on Premier’s production. For the 2011 version, Nore said that he had yet to select the guests to appear on the record, but he wanted XXL’s input.
“I have not chosen [who to reach out to],” he said. “I would like y’all ideas; who should I put on?” He continued, “Let’s get the new era MCs, let’s give them a chance to pay respect, to pay homage.”
As for the sound of the record, Nore simply stated, “It’s gonna be that beat, redone.”
Be sure to check out our next episode of Spotlight next Wednesday and stay tuned to XXLMag.com for more info on “Dwyck 2011.”
