For almost a quarter of a century DJ Premier has been at the forefront of the production game and that is no understatement. Despite being widely venerated across the generational divide, we at the Rap Buzz have heard numerous comments from hip hop literati that Preemo’s been resting on his laurels over the last few years. It has even been said that his beats are so formulaic they’ve become predictable. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and in no way are we saying that pioneers should escape criticism, but seriously?!
The Rap Buzz has nothing but love for Mean Joe Preem and we couldn’t be happier to post three bangers he’s produced this year. The man is no doubt in a rich vein of form and clearly knows no bounds. Bring on the collabos with Immortal Technique, Nas, AZ et al – all scheduled for 2013 releases!
Papoose - Turn It Up
Big Daddy Kane – 28 Bars of Kane
Ill Bill – World Premier
