Pete Rock Can’t Wait To Beat DJ Premier On Upcoming Collabo Album

Pete Rock joins us for a superb feature-length interview exploring the making of his new projects with DJ Premier, Smif N Wessun and Camp Lo, plus his forthcoming aspirations to work with Eminem, his contribution to Kayne and Jay Z’s album, as well as a track called ‘The Joy’ which didn’t make Kayne’s album and his desire to be part of The Four Horsemen project. We take time to hear the amazing creative process behind his forthcoming on wax battle with DJ Premier, with neither producer hearing what each other has contributed to the album until it is pressed. As focused and heart-warming as you would expect form such a legendary pioneer, Pete Rock also discusses how many beat she has submitted to Shady Records, his future work with the recently-released Prodigy, the reason for his initial dislike for Kayne West, being disillusioned by the direction hip hop took in the late 90s and the prospect of a new Pete Rock & CL Smooth album. A true classic. Check:


I can’t wait to have my own opinion on who won!! But I know I will have to wait!! 😀

Lady of Rage upcoming album “Verbal Abuse” is 95% fixed by DJ Premier

The Lady Of Rage is late for the interview. She’s late for the interview for good reason though – she was in the hair salon having her hair done. When she does arrive we discuss her brand new album “Verbal Abuse” scheduled for a summer 2011 release, production handled 95% by the master DJ Premier, as well as taking a heart-felt look at her career including her time at Death Row Records, her relationship with Suge Knight and Dr Dre and her contribution to the book “How To Rap: The Art and Science of the Hip-Hop MC.

This sounds like one of Preems hardest working years? Who’s next? Too bad we don’t see the albums on time though :D. But I accepted it lmao.
