With today, sadly, marking the third year since Guru’s tragic passing, the good folks at ego trip have unearthed this old VHS (remember those?) footage of the “electronic press kit” for he and DJ Premier’s 1991 album. Dopeness.
With the three year anniversary of the late Guru slowly approaching, Marco Polo teams up with DJ Premier who formed Gang Starr with the late raper on a tribute titled, “G.U.R.U.” The joint services as the lead single from Marco’s upcoming PA2: The Director’s Cutwhich project slated to drop in July. The LP is set to feature Organized Konfusion, Gangrene, Talib Kweli, DJ Premier, Masta Ace, Posdnuos Large Professor, and more. Shouts to Complex Music.
On the eve of the smoker’s holiday, DJ Premier and Raekwon are gonna be rocking down in Denver, Colorado as part of the Incredibowl’s 420 Extravaganja. On top of it being one of (if not thee) first legal 4/20 parties, DJ Premier will be spinning a two-hour “smoke” set and Raekwon will be performing Only Built 4 Cuban Linx in it’s entirety. Sounds like a dope evening regardless if you partake in the herbal activities. Take a look at the promo video above and head down bottom for the event’s flyer. Tickets are available now.
Legendary A&R Jeff Sledge and the Al Lindstrom crew have launched a new web series, Shop Talk, whereJeff sits down with some of his old friends to talk about the past. First up is equally legendary producer and turntable maestro DJ Premier.
Notorious B.I.G. and/or DJ Premier mashups aren’t anything new but New York-based DJ Finesse did this rather dope mix combining the two legends together for one epic hour of music. Props to TSS for reminding me about this joint. Tracklist, stream and link down bottom.
Co-signed by Premier himself, DJ Finesse presents his Biggie Over DJ Premier mixtape which actually made it’s debut on Premo’s Live From Headqcourterz SiriusXM show on March 8th. Seamlessly blended Biggie a cappellas over Premo instrumentals. Hit the jump for the tracklist and stream/download.
