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.

Wow, I used to post such information all the time when started 6 years ago. It’s a shame we rarely have vinyl releases anymore with DJ Premier productions on it. But when someone press up DJ Premier, I promote it! And thank to the good folks at Slice-of-spice Records we have another release. They pressed up the D.I.T.C. LP and made a package together with a limited 12″ of the DJ Premier Remix itself! Collectors, buy this shit asap because they are going fast!! Get it here.

So DJ Premier is telling us him and Nas are doing the collabo album once Nas contract with Def Jam is finished after this year… And now we have an update on Nas his carreer move, he will be joining the independent label Mass Appeal Records! The label is looking for big releases like a posthumous Pimp C album and the release of Lost Tapes 2 (Nas). And? A DJ Premier collabo album? That should be the deal right… This summer we’ll be seeing a compilation album by Mass Appeal Records with tracks from friends of the label including a cover of Gang Starr’s “Mass Appeal” by Nas! A new solo album by Nas on the label is planned for 2015. Coolio! Free online video chat Bongacams for man!

In a new interview with the Australian magazine Rip It Up DJ Premier give us some updates who he’s working with:
What else is cooking?
I just did a record with Ed Sheeran. We did some cool stuff – we were just experimenting in the studio, but it came out really good – so we got that going… I’m getting into the pop world again. I’ve started working with a group called Rizzle Kicks, who are very popular overseas – we did some cool stuff – and then I’m starting to work on Christina Aguilera’s [new] stuff.
There was talk of a final GangStarr album. Is that still coming?
Yeah – we’re waiting for a few things to get cleared. You know, [Elam's] estate is finally straightened out and it belongs to his son, his 13-year-old son. His mother manages [the estate] ’cause he’s still too young – but she’s a great mother and she’s a really great person… We’ll wait until all the tapes and masters are gathered up – I have a lot of the masters already, but we have a lotta stuff. I gotta [go] through and listen to ‘em, and listen to all those old DATs we found in [Elam's] house, when we cleaned his house out, and all that stuff. So I’ve gotta go through all of those and see if there’s any vocals that we didn’t use before and just see what can be used towards doing a proper album – and then, of course, get Jeru (The Damaja) and Group Home and Big Shug and other [GangStarr] Foundation members to add on to it to make it all complete.”
Rizzle Kicks from England? Cool!

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:
