With the ruckus currently brought about by new-age hip-hop, it’s kind of amazing and refreshing to get to see two of the most influential rap producers ever. DJ Premier and Peter Rock, touring together for the very first time, shared their thoughts on quite a few subjects: the 90’s, their supposed rivalry during their heyday, the continuing evolution of hip-hop beats, their West Coast counterparts (Dr. Dre, Kurupt, etc.), and of course, the demise of Primo’s partner-in-crime, Guru.
Insightful vid for all you hip-hop heads.
“Some people make beats. We produce.” – DJ Premier.
