PRHYME REVEALS WHAT LEGENDARY EMCEE DIDN’T MAKE THE ALBUM

In part two of WatchLoud‘s interview with Nickel and Preemo, the duo reveal what legendary emcee couldn’t make the album and how sample clearances helped the creation of the album.

“The concept was to have somebody who was a wizard with the samples, sample somebody who creates his own music so we won’t have to clear anything,” Royce tells WatchLOUD.com. “And we’ll just have a project that we could put out for the fans. Somewhere along the line it just ended up being an album. I kept having to push Preeme for ‘1 more or 2 more.’ Every time we got to a point that felt like we were somewhere I felt like we needed one more thing to round it out. I started to get more of a vision as we were doing it. The Adriane Young thing was a way for me to work with him and do this project with Premier that I’ve been wanting to do since ’99.”

DJ PREMIER TO MAKE RAP DEBUT ON “U LOOZ”

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.”
