DJ PREMIER // THE MASTER

DJ Premier is considered by many fans and hip-hop purists to be the greatest hip hop producer ever. He is hailed as an architect of “Hardcore East Coast hip-hop known by its heavy drums and sparse loops.”

Hip hop rag The Source magazine named DJ Premier one of the 5 greatest producers in hip-hop history, while editors from About.com ranked him as #1 in their “Top 50 Hip-Hop Producers” list. That’s not bad for guy who got his stage name from his mum!

In an interview with XXL Magazine, DJ Premier was asked how his sound evolved, “Marley Marl is my number one inspiration. Jam Master Jay, Mixmaster Ice and UTFO. Grandmaster D and Whodini. DJ Cheese, Grandmaster Flash, Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa. Jazzy Jay, even Cut Creator. Seeing them do what they do. It’s black music, it’s black culture, it comes from the ghetto. How can you not relate to ghetto people when that’s the rawest form of blackness? Even though it’s not a good place in regards to the economy and how bad people have it in the neighborhood, the realism’s there, and that’s what we were born out of. So I very much pay respect by doing the same type of music in return.”

Having worked with more people than even the most dedicated hip-hop trainspotters know about, Premier is responsible for the production of Jeru the Damaja’s first two albums, has done tracks with M.O.P. KRS-One, Group Home, NAS as well as JAY-Z.
