Royce Da 5′ 9 and DJ Premier take us behind the scenes of creating their PRyme project with Adrian Younge in their docu-series, “Raiders of The Lost Art.” Narrated by Bun B of UGK, the videos explore the history of Royce and Premier and they came to create their first full length project.
Premier admits that he has never let anyone see how he makes his beats but the artist’s he’s worked with can observe and “take the memory of what they saw.” They also talk about working with Adrian Younge, whose work is sampled throughout the project.
“It’s crazy but these new versions you made, actually made my music better,” Younge tells Premier. “Cuz when I listen to my music now I think of PRhyme. It’s hard for me to think of it on its own. You made that stuff better!”
