Afu-Ra Says DJ Premier Doesn’t Have Time For Him To Record

Afu-Ra is about to drop a new album in February, 2012. Before he wanted to release a new album named “Voice Of A Brooklyn Star” in September ’11 -actually a day before the album digital release- his studio in Switzerland burnt down. Luckily nobody got hurt but he lost most of his album cuts in less than an hour. So his album was delayed to February ’12. He took his bags back to his hood in Brooklyn and started recording new cuts. Meanwhile the album title is changed to “Body Of The Life Force Part 2”. In order to promote his album he released a press release stating the album will be featuring M.O.P., Sadat X, Nine, H. Stax and more. Productions will come from The New DJ Premier, Mike Rone and upcoming talents from around the world.

‘I was thinking of many ideas for this record, the only thing that made sense was represent your hood. Brooklyn I am the the body of life force. This album all the songs I payed close attention to the vocal performance. I wanted to drop spine tingling lyrics and express my self with the voice people deserve.’

Meanwhile everyone wants to hear Afu-Ra on a brand new DJ Premier beat, but it looks like it’s not going to happen for this album.

‘I will always wanna work with him [DJ Premier] but if he does not have the time for me, I can’t keep the people that matter more to wait any longer’. Then The New DJ Premier is Afu-Ra himself. ‘I know what I know, and that is to produce quality classic music. So for all who love the sound of Afu-Ra from now on he will be The New DJ Premier, “Body Of The Life Force 2” combines all of the ingredients Afu-Ra is known for and more.’ The first big cut from the album was posted on DJ Premier Blog some weeks ago. You can now buy it on iTunes.
