BEHIND THE BEAT: DJ PREMIER’S SONIC INSPIRATION IN THREE SAMPLES [VIDEO]

The legendary DJ Premier sits down with NPR’s “Behind The Beat” to explain his inspiration behind some of his classic beats. Watch as he breaks down the significance of Steve Davis’ “It’s All Because She’s Gone” (“The Planet”), Screamin’ Jay Hawkins “I Put A Spell On You” (“Kick In The Door”) and Curtis Mayfield’s “Kung Fu” (“Nice Girl, Wrong Place”).

RUN THE JEWELS FEAT. GREG NICE & DJ PREMIER – OHH LA LA [VIDEO]

A few weeks before the coronavirus pandemic shut down America, Killer Mike, El-P, Greg Nice and DJ Premier held the ultimate block party for the “Ooh La La” video from RTJ4.

“We shot this video only a few weeks before the pandemic hit with no clue as to what the future held. the fact that we got the chance to do it is damn near miraculous in hindsight. in conceptualizing the video with our friends Brian and Vanessa Beletic we imagined the world on the day that the age old struggle of class was finally over. a day that humanity, empathy and community were victorious over the forces that would separate us based on arbitrary systems created by man. this video is a fantasy of waking up on a day that there is no monetary system, no dividing line, no false construct to tell our fellow man that they are less or more than anyone else. not that people are without but that the whole meaning of money has vanished. that we have somehow solved our self-created caste system and can now start fresh with love, hope and celebration. its a dream of humanity’s V-DAY… and the party we know would pop off.

Love, RTJ”

JAMO GANG (RAS KASS, EL GANT & J57) FEAT. SLUG – THE 1ST TIME (PRODUCED BY DJ PREMIER)

Jamo Gang’s Walking With Lions drops on May 8th and the trio of Ras Kass, El Gant and J57 connect with Slug of Atmosphere for the DJ Premier-produced “The 1st Time.”

“We were all in the studio hanging out with Premier one night, and Preem played a few things he had in the chamber,” El Gant said to HipHopDX. “We really liked the vibe to it, and the rest is history. J57 thought it was the perfect song to ask Slug to be a part of and he was with it. It is really exciting for us to have these two together for the first time on one of our songs.”

“This song means a LOT to us,” J57 adds. “This is my first time rhyming on a DJ Premier beat and working with Slug, two people I’ve looked up to for many years before becoming friends with them. This is perfect. Premier even brought in legendary piano player, Tyler Kimbro to bless the track, which was also an honor.”
