OK ! NOW, ABOUT MY TOP 25 (HIP HOP LP’S ACCORDING TO DJ PREMIER)

I TRIED MY BEST TO DO TOP 20 AND I COULD NOT DO IT….THERE WERE SO MANY INDEPENDENT RELEASES THAT SPANKED THE MAJOR LABELS WHEN IT CAME TO HOW I JUDGE HIP HOP MUSIC…..FOR ALL OF YOU SHALLOW MINDED FOLK, I JUDGE HIP HOP BASED ON ORIGINALITY, STYLE, IF I CAN LISTEN TO THE WHOLE LP FROM INTRO TO OUTRO, ARE THE BEATS GOOD, ARE THE LYRICS WORTH LISTENING TO, DOES IT REPRESENT THE GHETTO IN ANY TYPE OF WAY FOR THE RAW AND HARDCORE AUDIENCE (WHICH INCLUDES ME) AND MOST IMPORTANTLY DOES IT MEET MY EXPECTATIONS FOR WHAT I KNOW THAT AN ARTIST SHOULD DELIVER SINCE I DO SPEND MY MONEY AND I AM A FAN, SO I SET A HIGH BAR ON THE ARTISTS TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING ME HAPPY WITH WHAT THEY DELIVER….I PUT MYSELF IN THAT SAME BOX WHICH IS WHY I STILL REMAIN CONSISTENT IN MY 40′S…..JAY-Z IS STILL RUNNIN’ THIS RAP SHIT BECAUSE HE KNOWS HOW THE GAME GOES…..Y’ALL BETTER KEEP UP…..HATE ME NOW FOR BEING HONEST………ONE……..p

BIG SHOUT TO MR. WALT WHOM I DISCUSSED ABOUT THIS BEFORE I EVEN STARTED MY LIST…ANOTHER TRUE HONEST OPINIONATED MAN…….ONE LOVE AND R.I.P. TO JENNIFER DEWGARDE

    I don’t recognize everyone on this list but there are some heavy hitters on here that didn’t make the final cut. Maybe you should have made two list. Anyway thx for making the list, you definitely exposed me to some new music that I will be checking out. Peace.

  • Comment from KAZAM92

    Haha maybe Primo left Kanye off the actual list because he couldn’t squeeze a beat in….

  • Comment from Avone

  • Comment from Hot Line 666

    …JAY-Z IS STILL RUNNIN’ THIS RAP SHIT BECAUSE HE KNOWS HOW THE GAME GOES……

    AND PREEM IS RUNNIN WHAT? SINCE DR DRES STYLE CHANGED ALSO TO ADAPT TO THE GAME?

    THE GAME IS BASED NOW ON FAKING HUSTLING MATERIAL SHIT AND THE CLUB.

    AGAIN SOON, JUSTIN BIEBER PRODUCED BY DJ PREMIER USING 808 SHIT.

    How does that suburban wack Pop-Trash “Rapper” Drake represent the ghetto exactly?

  • Comment from GB-4double

    G-fucius say’s “only a fool sits and questions another’s opinion as if they are not entitled to it…”

    Your opinion is based on what moves you in one way or the other. any hip-hop head who can’t respect the opinion of yours (or that of the Waltadore…) is just plain crazy…

    simple solution for those who dislike it…make your own list

  • Comment from MindsOneMusic

    We can’t thank you enough Preem!!..Your support for the underdogs is more valuable then you know.

    MindsOne CRU!

  • Comment from KAZAM92

    Heh….so DJ Premier himself took my Kanye comment seriously. I was joking fellas.

  • Comment from whatdaf@$!

    Hood music all the white kids buying the rap music and pop/rap crap uhhhhh!!!!Jay Z still #1! Come on this is why Hip Hop IS Dead!Comments like this and vets like Premier fakin the funk all day long to keep up with the Jones’S!He says and does what every body else does and that is try to please everyone!Mainstream hipsters and then come down to the level of the underground! GO pop premo and leave the underground to the real Heads gangstarr is will forever be on my turntable but you flip flop-in on whats good in music these days is sad!indie or major theirs no contest any time the mainstream drops hot garbage all the time its not rap music.Ganstarr was never a staple on the major scene you your self should no this and to put such crap in your list is why rapp music gets aw dis in the 2 thousand era!

  • Comment from blazham!

    Preem is just being Preem…Note that it’s his list and no one else’s but his list…Premo’s list only matters to Premo…It’s not like it’s gonna matter to anyone else because everyone has a list…And he needs to get off Jay’s dick…Jay-Z turned down that hot beat you gave him for “American Gangsta” and you wound up giving it to Ill Bill…Jay hasn’t worked with you since “In My Lifetime Vol.3 : The Life and Times of Shawn Carter” so why praise him Premo? Jay ain’t even thinking about you Preem and if he turns down another beat from you and he has an album that comes out the next year without you on it then what are you gonna do Preem? You gonna denounce Jay too? Lol…Fuck outta here…You could have at least put Kanye near the bottom of your top 20 as well because deep down you know he was suppose to have been on there…Sounds like bitterness to me and that’s my opinion Premo…Just like you have an opinion on your list is just like I can have my opinion on you being bitter towards Kanye…Don’t get pissed because Jay probably convinced Kanye not to put your hot beats on his album…You might wanna talk to Jay about that since he stays near Kanye 24/7…I wouldn’t be co-signing Jay all the time neither because you see how he treats Jaz-O,Dame Dash,Beanie Sigel and so many others he’s flushed down the drain…Have a man to man talk with Jay and ask him why he don’t keep harassing you for some hot shit Preem…And if you can put Drake on that list then you could’ve put Kanye on there so that’s how I know that list is a bit lame and biased and you know that’s the truth fame…Drake’s album ain’t no better than Kanye’s joint and Kanye got the 5 mic approval as well as other classic interviews from Rolling Stone and so many others across the board so please kill the bitterness next time fam because that’s not good coming from a dude who’s always kept it real in Hip-Hop…And don’t kiss up to Drake because I’m sure once Drake doesn’t put you on his second album like he promised then he’ll be the next to go down the tube with Kanye too…Honestly I’m sick of these dudes leaving you hanging Preem… What happened to the Eminem “Keys to The City” joint? See Eminem and Kanye left you hanging and Drake will be next…Wake up Preem! Kidnap NAS and go make an EP classic fam…or holla at me your devoted fan at blackcause@aol.com and give a dude your number and some real deal shit if you ever decide to get time to read this and I’ll rhyme over your heat fam…Stay on that real shit and again kidnap NAS and lock yourselves in the basement and make some hot unexpected shit on some small EP shit…NAS is waiting for you to come kidnap him aggressively so yall can do this…Yall got some studio work to do…Get use to me or excuse me “Get Use To Us!!!”
