Busta Rhymes – Grinch 2000 (Original Version) (Feat. Jim Carey) (Prod. by DJ Premier) (Radio Rip)


Here’s some unreleased Busta Rhymes x DJ Premier collabo featuring the Christmas spirit, recorded around 2000 with the Mr. Grinch soundtrack in a genius way sampled like only Premo can do it!
This was the original version but they used the one produced by Teddy Riley for the official soundtrack. The reason why this version never got released is unknown, but the beat was later given to the Coca Cola Company. Enjoy:

Ripped from DJ Eclipse ‘Rap Is Outta Control’. Also played by Statik Selektah radio show. Voila.

The Lox – Move Forward (Produced by DJ Premier)

The Lox announced that they were signing with Roc Nation only two weeks ago, and their new album Filthy America… It’s Beautiful is already here. The 12-track project includes features from Gucci Mane, Fetty Wap, Mobb Deep, Dyce Payne, and Infa-Red. Filthy America… It’s Beautiful is The Lox’s first proper album in sixteen years. They last dropped We Are the Streets way back in 2000, although they’ve continued to record and release music since then. Most recently, they dropped a trilogy of EPs called The Trinity.

And now it’s here! After the classic LOX x DJ Premier track “Recognize” back in 2000 they reunited for a new banger called “Move Forward”.
