Something left fielded I uploaded. A line-in recorded mix by DJ Premier before the Gang Starr performance in Montreal (back in 2003). Everybody knows by now DJ Premier is a big Rock & New Wave lover, but you can’t see him much mixing that genre. I love rock too, grew up on rapcore and 90s punk myself, but now not anymore. By getting older you learn to appreciate older music…
To mark this month’s 20th anniversary of Preemo and Guru’s sophomore LP, Premier provided the background of the defining duo’s first timeless full-length. Preemo revealed rarely known details about the album’s creation, including the real life robbery-gone-wrong that inspired one of Hip Hop’s greatest cautionary tales, “Just To Get A Rep,” how Preemo’s surprising Punk Rock roots affected the length of certain album cuts, and every other possible detail you could ever think of wanting to know about the album that cemented Gang Starr as a timeless tag team.
You can download the clean mp3 version under this post, enjoy!
