The last time the Mash Out Posse and Busta Rhymes were on a song together was the remix to “Ante Up” so best believe that another collaboration was long overdue. “Broad Daylight (187 Pt. 2)” is off of the upcoming Street Certified EP (executive produced by DJ Premier) that celebrates two decades of M.O.P. and drops on November 18th. Now, enough reading and listen to the tandem “off your on switch.”

In an interview with Watch Loud, DJ Premier announced that he will make his debut as an emcee on the song “U Looz” off of the PRhyme album with Royce Da 5’9″. Watch as Primo and Nickle explain how this all came about.
“When I heard it I went in the studio when he wasn’t there and jumped in and I spit a couple of bars, which you’re gonna see in the video we’re releasing this week,” says Premier. “It’s a longer version of the promo. So you’ll see me spit a couple lines then he jumps back in and we made a comedy thing out of it where he’s cracking on me because I’m attempting to rap. It’s more like an interlude but turned into one of the joints on the album.”

The good folks over at DJbooth.net compiled a list of producers who have used the most samples in the history of hip hop. Care to take a guess who tops the list?
#1 DJ Premier: 1,458 Tracks Sampled
Premo isn’t just the number one sampler in hip-hop history, he’s number one by a mile and a half. Granted, he has been steadily making beats for decades, but he still has an astounding number of flips. I mean, 1,458 is more than double 9th Wonder, who I consider to be one of the best producers ever. I guess every scratch counts, but still, this amount of sampling is mind bottling. Dude even beat out Girl Talk, who makes his money on unimaginatively taking other peoples tracks. All hail the king!
You can check out the rest of the list, which includes Girl Talk, DJ Shadow, Dr. Dre and more, here.
