DMC & DJ Premier Does Knicks 2016-17 Anthem

In an interview with Complex Magazine DMC revealed he worked with DJ Premier for the new Knicks Anthem! Check check:

That shirt you’re wearing [a Run-NYC Knicks shirt] is awesome.
You wanna hear something cool?

Tell me.
Me and DJ Premier just did the new Knicks anthem.

What?!
YES. And it’s New York City. It ain’t no EDM, it ain’t no pop music.

Is that dropping soon?
It’s dropping very soon. Just got the final thing. It’s KILLA.

[Starts rapping.] DMC is on the mic, and Preem is on the mix /

That’s all I gotta say. It’s real tough. It was my first time working with DJ Premier. It’s the New York Knicks new anthem. It’s hard.

[Starts rapping.] The attitude and the mood is New York / Nobody can do it like New York / This is how we do it in New York / So let’s show ‘em how we do it in New York / Let’s go!

Is that a sample of what’s to come?

Yeah. And then the beat drops and it’s over.

Here you have an interview with him from yesterday in Dubai where he’s performing later this week…

First Division “This Iz Tha Time” Getting A 12″ Single Release

This deserves definitely a blog post!! They all say vinyl sells are again rising and rising but that’s for older LP’s who gets a reissue or some shit but it’s a fact that singles for new albums aren’t pressed on vinyl anymore, only iTunes and shit. So we lost a lot of DJ Premier instrumentals on wax these years… But the good folks of Slice of Spice are now giving First Division “This Iz Tha Time” a wax release, because of the big costs to do this, this one is limited and exclusive if you buy the collectors edition of their full LP release “Overworked & Underpaid”. The single also features a non album cut “Watch Out” produced by Marco Polo! Sign up here if you want to be on the list for the collectors edition as it’s getting released soon…

Also folks, the new Papoose collabo with DJ Premier for NBA is leaked, also The Game collaboration “The Documentary 2”. But you’ll have to search them yourself as I can’t “leak” shit anymore. Peace!
