DJ Premier tells the story behind the creation of The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Ten Crack Commandments.” Originally, the beat was meant for Angie Martinez’s show on Hot 97 with Jeru the Damaja rhyming over it. But then Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs intercepted the beat while visiting the radio station and told DJ Premier to call him on the air. Puffy asked for it to complete Biggie’s Life After Death album and things got interesting. Remember, Jeru and Biggie had beef at the time and, well, let Preemo tell it.
For episode 2 of DJ Premier’s “So Wassup?” the legendary producer digs back into the story behind creating “Unbelievable” for The Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready To Die album. Did you know that Preemo originally turned down Biggie due to time constraints? Fortunately, that didn’t happen and DJ Premier ended up cooking up a memorable classic.
