“Once you speak my name/ I speak hot flames…”
Who says southern rappers can’t rock over boom-bap? Houston’s Khaleel is one of DJ Premier’s new artists, and was featured prominently on last month’s Year Round Records compilation Get Used to Us. The unfinished video for this song leaked a few days ago, much to the chagrin of Premier. Now with all the bells and whistles in place, including a special Bun B cameo, Premier is now ready to drop the clip. The album can be purchased through iTunes.
“Due to a staff error, the new video for Khaleel’s “Hot Flames” which appears on my new LP, DJ Premier Presents-Year Round Records: Get Used To Us, has been yapped by all of the Internet yappers and I had just been reviewing the final edit of the video—but now its out there without the proper setup… Khaleel’s upcoming LP will be entitled Already and its gonna be another hot one—as all of my work is.
Shout out to my publicist Matt Conaway who has been tasked with helping me do damage control and is sending out the proper link to view Khaleel’s video while I prepare to drop LP after LP in 2011!
Year Round Records is that deal!”
