What's been up?!

Yo yo, I'm back again with this blog. I'll try to fix all the dead links and all that sh*t, we always kept it down with the Dj Premier Forum, props to all my dawgs there (Johan, Gim, Sup, Kensy, Crackdaddy, Tob1, Daprim1, Moe, Nikolistic, Billyskam, skobe, Flow, SiFsky, Whateva, Fubizz and everybody, sorry if I forgot names...). But first of all, let's talk about what Dj Premier have done those last two years:
A lot of ups and downs I have to admit, Primo disappointed us sometimes but from time to time there was bangers like Fat Joe's "That white" or Kool G Rap's "On the rise again". He focused a lot on his Sirius Satellite Radio show "Live from HeadQCourterz", he began to take calls and have guests along with co-host Big Shug. Speakin' about Shug, one of the best joints was "Play it", most recently they did "Muhfucka" together, a sort of a funny interlude or shout out that turned to be a track on Big Shug's upcoming album "The other side of the game". There'll be another Primo joint on that album called "My boston" featuring Singapore Kane and Termanology, look out for that. The last one had a good second joint with Primo called "So amazing".

I'll continue with the ups: one of the best joints Primo did these last years is obviously "Ya dayz R #'d" (read: Ya days are numbered) for his Year Round Records duo NYG'z. The video is available all over Youtube and Dailymotion, he also released their pre-album called "Welcome 2 G-Dom", containing the old known track with the same name. They also did a video for it, and if that's not all, Premier did a remix for "Ya dayz R #'d" called "NYGemix" featuring Lady of Rage, Freddie Foxxx and Royce Da 5'9''. The dream team of Hip-Hop I'd say, the beat is different as the "You know my steez" remix, I love it personally!. Another track is available on NYG'z pre-album called "Legendary part.1" featuring Blaq Poet and Nick Javas, a new Year Round signed artist that sounded dope on that "Live from HQ freestyle" (Legendary part.2 is obviously coming soon)...anyway, the real final NYG'z album is called "Pros & Cons" and should be released in August 2008, as Premier stated. Most recently, Primo did a joint for a boston new MC called Reks, "Say goodnight" sounds dope as a mothaf*cka but it misses something that makes it a CLASSIC BANGER! (here's the VID, wack by the way).

Let's talk about the downs: Primo didn't figure on Nas' new album (but that's not Premier's fault, Nas is a b*tch and made a wack ass album), another Year Round Records artist called Khaleel from Texas is in jail, so we gotta wait a lil bit for his album, he did a wack ass track in my humble opinion for Ali Vegas called "Everyday iz war", he did a wack beat for Sunkiss and his "We go back", but the track is aight tho, same goes for KRS One's "Criminal minded 2008": the track is aight, but the beat is not as good as it supposed to be with those two legends. On an other side, it's been like 3 weeks since we heard something new on his Sirus Satellite Radio show, and what makes me fear is the best "Live from HQ" shows I heard this year were when somebody filled in for Premier when he was on tour, like Statik Selektah, Marley Marl and especially Dj Eclipse. Primo sometime plays wack ass track on his show and that makes doubt about his tastes and creativity: did Premier lost his genius soul???...I hope not.
