DJ Premier Said No To Justin Bieber Wanting To Be On The BET Cyphers ’11

Don’t get it wrong, DJ Premier doesn’t have anything against Justin Bieber. The story goes like this, Justin Bieber asked if he could join the BET Cyphers ’11 which was cool for Premo and the staff. DJ Premier doesn’t care who joins the cyphers as long as you can spit dope verses everybody is allowed. But then Justin Bieber wanted Ludacris to write his rhymes and that wasn’t allowed by DJ Premier. Thanks to DJ Premier the BET Cyphers are still spitting ryhmes on dope breaks like they used to do it on the streets… Word!

Nick Javas Leaving Year Round Records

Nick Javas leaved DJ Premier’s label Year Round Records. No further details were released, but they both go separate ways in peace. Together they did 2 big European/World tours and released 2 singles with videos. It wasn’t a secret Nick Javas would love to do more mainstream music, but his debut album “Destination Unknown” looked promising in the hip hop world with productions by DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Marco Polo, Statik Selektah & more. The DJ Premier beats from the album will probably be used by other artists in the future. We from DJ Premier Blog wishing Nick Javas the best and a promising future. The 2 times I saw him personally he was a real friendly guy.

Now NYGz and Khaleel are the only two who are signed to Year Round Records. But also the upcoming MC Eiht & Pete Rock collabo album are scheduled to get a release on the label. Be on the lookout!

Here is some old track from Khaleel with Nick Javas:
