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!

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.
