De La Soul Will Record Their Pete Rock/DJ Premier Mixtape Next Month

Earlier this year, both De La Soul and Pete Rock confirmed that a new project, set to be called Premiem Soul On The Rocks, was in the works which would be entirely produced by both Rock and DJ Premier. Originally scheduled to be an EP, the collection will now take the form of a mixtape, which the famed Long Island trio consisting of Posdnous, Dave and Maseo will begin working on this September.

“Right now we’re just accumulating beats,” Dave told XXL in a phone interview earlier today (Aug. 4). ”The guys have been sending us beats. No real idea of what the theme is gonna be, the theme behind the title, what that’s gonna be, if it’s gonna be skits, if it’s gonna be songs, remakes, whatever it is. Right now we’ve just been accumulating beats and waiting for Premier to handle some stuff as well. So it’s still in its early stages, but we actually plan on recording through the month of September for it, so we’re getting on it.”

Behind The Scenes at Nas Upcoming Video for “Represent”

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Illmatic, Nas and Mass Appeal held a contest inviting fans to collaborate and produce the official music video for “Represent.” The winner, Brian Katz, was chosen to create the first video ever made for the track, which was shot at the YouTube Space Los Angeles.

Katz collaborated with Mass Appeal’s own Jason Goldwatch to create an inspired set of visuals.

“As someone who has had Illmatic in heavy rotation for the past 20 years, the opportunity to represent as a true fan in sharing my vision with Nas and have Jason Goldwatch help bring that vision to reality is proof positive that indeed ‘The World is Yours,’” Brian Katz said in a press statement.

The video is influenced by the soundtrack to the 1924 silent film, The Thief of Bagdad, which DJ Premier sampled on the song. The original organ score performed by Lee Erwin inspired Katz and Goldwatch to create visuals that attempt to draw parallels between the film’s protagonist and Nas.

Before the full video drops, watch some behind the scenes footage of the video shoot in Los Angeles. Stay tuned for the “Represent” video.
