PRhyme’s “Raiders of the Lost Art” Documentary Pt. 2

DJ Premier Shares Thoughts on Cosby Rape Allegations

While promoting, PRhyme, his collaborative project with Royce Da 5’9, HHW caught up with DJ Premier to get his thoughts on the Cosby allegations:

Man, its so weird because all the years his image has been so not tarnished, and you know now that he’s 77 and this comes out and it goes from just one person to two people — to 15 girls. And you know we don’t have real facts, we were not in the rooms with these girls. No matter what they say, till the court of law says you are guilty, you have to always ride with it and say, ‘Yo, you are still cool till proven otherwise. And you know it’s weird that now after all these years something like this will come out and you look at all the body of work he’s done, from Fat Albert to even The Cosby Show and those things gave our people something to make ‘em want to strive for greatness. I would hope that at the end of all this, it does not turn out to be 100 percent true because it would be hypocritical of him to push all of these agendas, especially the whole thing with rappers and how they should watch their language all that stuff — and then turn around you are doing something crazy like that. Let’s hope that he comes out with a clean slate, and I’m sure in the wash that will come out, if it’s dirt still in the machine then we will know. I love Bill Cosby, I’m a big fan. Always will be and you know, same thing with R. Kelly, I still love his music despite the sh– he went through, it’s not like now your music does not mean anything to me. Let’s hope that he isn’t tarnished at the end of this, because they are not gonna ease up on him, they are gonna see how real this sh– is, so let’s hope he can clean it up and prove us wrong. Right now, I only believe the facts and that’s all you can go by.


I had my doubts posting this, but yeah. TMZ shit.
