DJ Premier circa 1998


When the now indispensable Amazon MP3 system went up I did random searches of all my favorite artists in hopes of finding unknown gems like this one here….well referring to the original as a “gem” would be a bit of an overstatement…..Premier’s production on here is of my favorite variety and there is the added bonus of an almost minute-and-a-half scratch routine ala “DJ Premier Is In Deep Concentration” but Robby Robertson’s (of The Band) beat poet vocals are straight laughable…that is until he ruins a B-section (a rare Premier treat oddly only bestowed upon non-rappers) with his bullshit. As a result, that part couldn’t be included in my edit….luckily the main part and the scratch sentence (more paragraph-like) saves an otherwise odd duck in the legendary Premier discography……
