Track Taste...DJ CAM

Here's the Dj Premier remix of Voodoo Child by the french DJ CAM. This track is magnificient!! It's featuring the one and only Afu-Ra. Cam paid hommage to Primo in one of his albums (I think the one called Liquid Hip Hop) on a track called PREMIER. He also did an excellent track with Guru called Espionage, in the vein of Gang Starr's She knowz what she wants...

Xzibit - What a mess

Wednesday, April 26, 2006


Finally, something new from Primo is released...On the 2nd of May, a mixtape called God VS Devil will be released from DJ PREMIER, here's the final tracklist from HipHopsite...Hope that it'll contain Primo production, F.A.Y.B.A.N. 2006 from Poet seems like one of 'em...

Track Taste...MOBB DEEP

You know what 50 Cent said about MOBB DEEP?? He said that their collaboration on "Outta control remix" is the best track Mobb Deep ever did...How the f*ck a "kid" like Fifty talk about pioneers like Mobb Deep, and why for God sakes they signed with G-Unit??? Anyway, let's listen to true old skool Mobb Deep, a Primo/Large Pro production...

Mobb Deep - Peer pressure

Video Taste...ROYCE DA 5'9"

Here's the video clip for the masterpiece ROYCE DA 5'9" & Primo track called "Boom", it's the second version of the track with a new hook, featuring Royce's little sister...The video is based from the movie Carmen: A Hip-Hopera, starring Beyoncé, Mekhi Phifer & Mos Def; that's what we call a garbage movie!! ;)

Track Taste...CHEYENNE

Yet another Premier-Japan collabo; check out this nice remix of "Feel my love" done for CHEYENNE, an R&B singer...Even if I don't understand a word, she sounds very good!

Cheyenne - Feel my love (Dj Premier RMX)

Track Taste...SAUCE MONEY

Here is an excellent Dj Premier-produced track for SAUCE MONEY, you'll find it on his last album Middle Finger U...I already posted Against the grain, another Primo track for Sauce. I don't understand why he's so slow to put out records, cauz' he's an excellent rapper and writer, people often forget that he ghostwrote Missin' you for Puffy...

Sauce Money - Intruder alert


Wu-Tang, Wu-Tang, Wu-Tang, Wu-Tang, PRIMO, PRIMO, PRIMO, PRIMO, Wu-Tang, Wu-Tang...This ODB track makes me jump like a mothaf**in' kangaroo...R.I.P. Ol' Dirty...

Ol' Dirty Bastard - Pop shots (clean)

Track Taste...SCREWBALL

What can we say more about SCREWBALL's Poet & Primo collabo?? Nothing. Just listen...

Screwball - F.A.Y.B.A.N.

Screwball - Seen it all

Friday, April 21, 2006


This song is killin' me, true Hip-Hop with true rappers like JD, Snoop, Warren G & R.O.C. Even Dr. Dre's half-brother is spittin' on it...Why does them West Coast and Atlanta guys come to Primo for a beat?? Cauz' Primo's the best...

Track Taste...DEVIN THE DUDE

Check out this laid-back track by DEVIN THE DUDE, produced by the Waxmaster C...Excellent track, "the bass line is CRITICAL" like Chi-Ali said to Primo...

Video Taste...CROOKLYN DODGERS '95

Here's the video of the legendary "Return of the Crooklyn Dodgers" by Chubb Rock, O.C. & Jeru The Damaja aka CROOKLYN DODGERS '95...By the way, I heard Crooklyn Dodgers '06 feat. Mos Def, Jean Grae & Memphis Bleek and produced by 9th Wonder: Some real bullsh*t, I don't like it at all...

Track Taste...LINA

This Dj Premier remix (feat. Guru) done for LINA's "It's alright" makes me crazy man!!! I love it!!!! Damn Primo, how can u do a monster beat with just a reverse turntable noise???? Just tell me how Prim'?? Btw, there's another version of this remix where Lina herself raps...

Lina - It's alright (Dj Premier RMX aka Gang Starr RMX)


Takin' you back to the old skool dayz, here's a track produced by Premier for the english duo of female MC's, THE COOKIE CREW...You'll find it on their album called "Fade to black"...

The Cookie Crew - A word to the conscious

Sunday, April 16, 2006


This track is f*ckin' dope. A true Gang Starr Foundation song. GURU always gave dope Jazzmatazz albums, this joint (with a Gang Starr production) is for all the ladies, mamies, sugaz, sweeties, honeys. "I luv", like M.O.P. & Bumpy said...

Guru's Jazzmatazz feat. Big Shug - Where's my ladies?

Once again, a Hip-Hop community member dies: PROOF (born Deshaun Holton) of Eminem's D12 died a few dayz ago, he was shot outside a night club for strange reasons, but when you make yourself ennemies and you diss peoples like Suge Knight, you have to know that there'll be reprisals. Even if I don't like them D12, R.I.P. to a good rapper anyway...Here's a funny remake of Jeru's "Playin' yaself" produced by Primo on Proof's 1st album "I miss the Hip Hop shop"...My condolences goes straight to his family and friends...

Proof (of D12) - Play with myself

Track Taste...CHI-ALI

A lot of people asked me to post this old skool track, certainly one of the best old skool Primo-produced tracks ever. CHI-ALI was a very good rapper back in the dayz, he was made famous by the song "Age ain't nothing but a number", but now he's incarcerated for killin' his sister's boyfriend or some sh*t like that. It was released only on a VLS and on Primo's "Early years Vol.1"...

Chi-Ali - No surrender, no retreat

Track Taste...TEFLON

Here is an excellent track (that I thought produced by Primo, but it's produced by AB, thanx to Vine) by TEFLON aka TEF, the track is a shout out to the true pioneers like Big Daddy Kane and Biz Markie, it's like a remake of "Just rhymin' with Biz"...

Tef' feat. Krumbsnatcha - Just rhymin' with Krumb

Track Taste...O.C.

Too dope, too hardcore, too Hip-Hop, too excellent, too Primo, too D.I.T.C., too O.C. ...

O.C. feat. Organized Konfusion - War games

Video Taste...D&D All Stars

Another ultra rare video for the famous D&D All Stars, (feat. Mad Lion, Doug E. Fresh, Smiff-N-Wessun, KRS-One, Fat Joe & Jeru), "1,2 Pass it" produced by Primo...

Video Taste...ALL CITY

Check out this pretty rare video for the dope ALL CITY track produced by Primo: "The Actual"...

Track Taste...OMAR

Check out this nice Dj Premier remix (aka Dj Premier Mix) for the UK singer OMAR, the track is featuring the excellent rapper Uptown that we heard on the famous Buckshot Lefonque/Brandford Marsalis "Music evolution"...Primo also did the remix of this song, so it means that Uptown spit twice on Primo beats...Hope that they collaborate again!!

Omar feat. Uptown - Keep steppin' (Dj Premier RMX)

Track Taste...NAS

This track is a dope hardcore joint by Nasty NAS, too forgotten and too unrated...The storytellin' is the same than on 2 Pac's "Me and my girlfriend" (even better), sometimes people forget that Nas is a true street poet and one of the best MC's ever. Still waitin' that PREMIER-NAS album dawgz...

Soundtrack...Hooked: The Legend of Demetrius "Hook" Mitchell

My man Johan sent me this audio trailer of the movie HOOKED: The Legend of Demetrius "Hook" Mitchell (the soundtrack is done by Dj Premier, you'll hear the "Vision" skit of Afu and some other unreleased dope beats), which traces the life of the fabulous playground basketball player from Oakland CA, who was made famous by his slam dunk contests where he jumped over trucks and cars and who is most respected by basketball legends as Jason Kidd or Gary Payton cauz' he would have been a supernatural player like a Michael Jordan if he haven't been caught in drugs and stuff...But, when he went to jail, he became muslim and is now an example for a lot of people from the ghetto...Al Hamdulilah...

Track Taste...KRS-One

I wanted to post this topic to give much props to a real MC that deserved to be nomined as the best MC ever a few yearz ago: KRS-One...When I heard KRS for the 1st time, I didn't like his style that much cauz' when I was a kid, I didn't understand english that good, so I didn't get what he was sayin'. But now...just listen to this track produced by Primo, you'll understand that this guy is one of the only guyz we can call MC...Premier always says in interviews that the most memorable studio sessions he did were with KRS, it was the best chemistry he said...But they don't make tracks together no more cauz' KRS was mad at Primo cauz' he give beats for $35,000, not $5,000 like he did back in the Boom Bap album dayz...But Primo said that he didn't want to lower the price cauz' he wasn't contacted by KRS himself, it was his manager or somebody; and he was pissed cauz' they was good friends and if KRS told him that himself, they would have discussed the price and all that. Plus, it's KRS-One, sh*t, he'll sell records anyway, especially if Primo is involved!!

Krs-One - Higher Level


Check out this excellent Dj Premier remix of CMW's "Def Wish"...MC Eiht is dope on this track, I didn't hear Chill MC tho...You'll find this one on their best of album called "When we wuz bangin', 1989-1999: The Hits". Like Eiht says in the end of the track: "My man PREMIER, take me outta here...".

Track Taste...RISE & SHINE

Check out this excellent hardcore track by the political underground duo called RISE & SHINE, produced by Dj Premier...If you want some lessons of cuts and scratches by Primo, here it is. He also took a cut (*) of this song and put it on Gang Starr's "Rite where u stand"...
(*): "My people from the hood stay on the grind..."


Check out this dope Premier remix for QUEEN LATIFAH, this track is definitely one of the best remixes that Primo did. This version is featuring Likwit Crew & Dilated Peoples affiliated Defari...

Queen Latifah feat. Defari - Wrath of my madness (Dj Premier RMX)

Track Taste...D'ANGELO

When D'ANGELO hooks up with Primo, it's always something excellent...They did "Devil's pie", "Lady RMX feat. AZ" and also this remix for "Me and those dreamin' eyes of mine"...Dope sh*t, I'm still waitin' for some new collabo between 'em...
