In promotion of PRhyme, out next Tuesday, DJ Premier & Royce Da 5’9″ star in this humorous new Funny or Die Skit where artists like Miguel and Lady of Rage come into the studio to hear some exclusive new Premier beats. Except things don’t go as they’d assume… enjoy!
ICYMI: PRhyme (Album Stream)
Great idea here as ATCQ’s Ali Shaheed takes the LP he narrated, Souls of Mischief & Adrian Younge’s There Is Only Now …and remixes it. Stream below!
PRhyme… a.k.a. the team of Royce Da 5’9″ and the legendary DJ Premier. The fact that they have a collaborative LP coming out is alone great news for hip hop heads. Get a load of the features… Common, Killer Mike, Jay Electronica, Ab-Soul, ScHoolboy Q, Slaughterhouse, Mac Miller, and Dwele.
Royce tells XXL:
“I want people to appreciate the fact that we didn’t compromise in lieu of the environment. In order to try to change the way that people digest music, we had to take a leap of faith,” says Royce. DJ Premier adds, “The bar has to be high. For this album to be another body of work and another chapter for both of our lives.”
Additionally, DJ Premier says all of his samples will be entirely from the catalogue of Adrian Younge.
I’ve never sampled just one artist, I’m known for my reputation and my creativity. I wanted it to be my traditional thing where I sample everything I find, but I am really proud how the project came out and Royce is one hell of a pusher.
So Royce gets the Guru treatment.. I think he’s worthy and I’m lookin’ forward to the creativity and cohesiveness to come on this self-titled project.
Ok, Souls of Mischief! “There Is Only Now” is the first, and self-titled preview of the collab project with producer Adrian Younge and Snoop Dogg joins in on the fun. Lookout for the LP to drop August 26th.
BONUS: Snoop Dogg is also featured in the new Outlawz video for “Karma”. If you like one, I think you’ll like the other here.
