Never heard of the guy but it seems he’s a talented singer from the States, curious about it (always love the rnb productions from Premo). But wait, many people -including me- actually will remember him from something:

MC Eiht Discusses Status Of Album With DJ Premier

MC Eiht says that his album with DJ Premier will be dropping soon.

“It’s gonna come out before the Summer ends,” MC Eiht says during an exclusive interview with HipHopDX at the G­-Funk Fest in Santa Ana, CA. “Me and DJ Premier are finally finishing it up. We finally got all the paperwork ready and all the music together. We just did a cut with Bumpy Knuckles last night. It’s gonna be a fun project, and a lotta people thinking it’s gonna be like a total East Coast sound cause of Premier, but it’s a real diverse album as far as what’s expected from Eiht and DJ Premier. It’s gonna be a classic in that form with just some real underground Hip Hop. Premier is in Switzerland right now, but he’s got Pro Tools with him. Like I said, we did a cut with Bumpy Knuckles last night and he’s mixing it, so we gonna get [The Lady of] Rage on the record and then we got Xzibit and Maylay and we should be good.”


Xzibit & Premo? What a hot mess!

Big K.R.I.T. Wants To Work With DJ Premier

In an interview with Vibe Big K.R.I.T. talks about his desire to work with DJ Premier:

Are there any artists you’d like to work with and haven’t had the opportunity to yet?
DJ Premier. He’s one of those producers I look forward to finding time and working with. I’ve had the opportunity to work with Organized Noize but I still want to get in some more with them and work. Timbaland is someone I definitely want to collab with and work with as well. Kanye, obviously. The Roots. I’d like to get in with Questlove.

DJ Premier Collabo’s We Should Watch Out For in 2014

I’m actually surprised of how many DJ Premier productions are on the planning, here’s a quick list made by me:

- Venom and DJ Premier worked again, no remix, the track is called “Poison” and it will be on his upcoming album “Overdrogues” coming this year! The track is already recorded!

- Saigon has 3 tracks produced by DJ Premier and a featuring with Big Daddy Kane in his pocket! It will appear on “The Greatest Story Never Told Chapter 3: The Playbook” and to take Saigon’s words: “The feature I been waiting my whole life for. This is bigger than the Jay-Z feature to me personally.” Hopefully 12″ single with video! #Hyped

- Diabolic has a track produced by DJ Premier to be featured on his upcoming album “Fightin’ Words” coming next year!

- Immortel Technique has a Premo track for his upcoming album “The Middle Passage”, the only problem is, we already waiting on this since November 2010, are we going to hear it in 2014, who knows?

- Busta Rhymes!! In the beginning of 2011 Busta recorded 2 track with DJ Premier for his upcoming album on Cash Money. The one was an intro and the second one is called “Return Of The Boom Bap ’12″, they will both feature on “E.L.E.2 (Extinction Level Event 2)”. There was even a short clip leaked on the internet with Busta & Premo in the studio where you could hear the track in the background, but I can’t seem to find it again. Btw, I’ve already heard the track at one of Premo’s soundcheck, and it was HARD. An absolute banger coming in 2014!

- Macklemore and DJ Premier have contacted each other for a collabo, but it’s unknown if the track is already recorded. But Macklemore did stay in New York for quit some time… Let’s see!

- Blaq Poet and DJ Premier have contacted each other for a new track, no more details available.

- Joey Bada$$ does not only has the “Unorthodox” beat in his pockets, but there is a second track between the 2 for his official debut album “B4.Da.$$” coming in 2014!

- Dilated Peoples received a DJ Premier beat on Guru’s B Day for their upcoming album “Directors of Photography”, to be released in 2014. #Hyped

- Jadakiss contacted DJ Premier to record again for his upcoming album “Top 5, Dead Or Alive”.

- In the summer of this year DJ Premier recorded a track with Slaughterhouse for their upcoming album. This will shake the hip hop world up in 2014!

- DJ Premier has a beat ready for Masta Ace, but they didn’t record the vocals yet. Very unsure if it will happen in 2014.

- DJ Premier x Serato Limited Double Vinyl Release

- Scarface! Yeah, Scarface will have a DJ Premier beat on his upcoming album “Rooted”. Scarface told the world he’s been waiting on this beat since 1998 when they recorded “Betrayal” for Gang Starr.

- Wale did a studio session with DJ Premier in April, but the Premo track wasn’t released on the album it was supposed to be featured on. No more details available. Probably the track never got finished.

- DJ Premier will be producing the lead single “Nothin’ Alike” for Ea$y Money‘s upcoming album.

- Snowgoons confirmed this legendary remix coming in 2014! Featuring Termanology, Lil Fame, Sean P, Ruste Juxx, Justin Time & H. Stax. Papoose and Reks are added specially for this remix by DJ Premier.

- UK Artist Professor Green did a joint with DJ Premier for his upcoming album, Premo worked with Ed Sheeran also.

- Slice-of-spice Records (who is working heavily with Lord Finesse) is doing an D.I.T.C. Remix album this year which is featuring DJ Premier!

- King Magnetic is dropping his debut album this year with a DJ Premier banger on it (already recorded!).

- We also have First Division, Soulkast and Kool Sphere who are promised a DJ Premier production.

- Will Hasstyle “I Love When” see a proper release in 2k14? Who knows (the clip was already shot).

- M.O.P. was talking about releasing two projects this year, one earlier 2014 with 1 Premo production on it, the second will be a collabo album with DJ Premier releasing at the end of 2014.

- And at least we have the many on hold full projects for the long run: Jakk Frost, KRS-One, Pete Rock, Teflon, NYGz, Lady of Rage, MC Eiht, Gang Starr DVD Project & Heather B
