DJ Premier & Pete Rock Dual Interview

This is invaluable info from two of the master producers in Hip-Hop history. Mandatory viewing.

Those who were online for Christmas got a nice treat with DJ Premier’s blog dropped this exclusive sitdown interview with Premier and Pete Rock. Based on the hotel setting and Japanese word characters, this interview likely took place during an overseas stop. Premier reveals how he literally fell into Gang Starr when the emcee of his previous group blindsided him by enrolling in the Navy. He details the differences between the album and single versions of “Words That I Manifest,” and a violent altercation at label Wild Pitch over his contract. On Pete Rock’s end, he reviews his creative process on what many consider his best work, the remix to Public Enemy’s “Shut ‘Em Down.” Pete also gives great info on one of his other undisputed classic in “T.R.O.Y.”

Grab a snack, because both legends reflect for a full hour! This is invaluable info from two of the master producers in Hip-Hop history. Mandatory viewing.
