DJ Premier is one of, if not THEE greatest Hip-Hop producer of all time. So it’s only fitting that Nardwuar delve into the New York legends past on a quick stroll down memory lane. But where exactly do you start?
Since arriving on the scene in the mid 80’s and being a lifelong fan of the genre, Preemo has been witness to Hip Hop’s golden age which included the rise of N.W.A, ATCQ, Wu-Tang Clan, Mobb Deep, UGK, Jay-Z, Nas–not to mention his group Gang Starr–to name more than a few.
Nardwuar, not one to disappoint in his interviews, got DJ Premier to speak on samples he has used, looking for bootleggers with Brooklyn’s own M.O.P., and being witness to an alleged brawl between Ice Cube and Suge Knight, plus more.
Check out the interview below.
