DJPremierblog posted this bonus interview from the DJ Premier vs Pete Rock DVD released in Japan. So much history dropped in this hour-long chat. Required watching if you’re born after 1985.
Among other things Premier talks about making the early Gangstarr recordings like “Words I Manifest” “Jazz Music” and how he got out of his first recording contract with Wild Pitch records that “signed his life away.”
Pete talks about making his classic remixes like House Of Pain’s “Jump Around” and they both talk about working on Nas’ Illmatic.
