One half of legendary hip-hop duo Gang Starr, with emcee Guru (rest in peace) his unique production style is how he creatively chopped up samples which brought an innovative approach by having just a few sample elements drive the track, with purposeful sparseness yet having a powerful presence.
The list of artists he has blessed with production is countless, and when you are putting it down for Jay-Z, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Mos Def, Rakim, Common, to Christina Aguilera recruiting him for her "Back to Basics" record, then your top game.
Most of us don't get a chance to kick it with Premier in his studio environment as he creates his next masterpiece, nor do we run into him at our local coffee spot by our cribs to pick his brain a little. So the next best thing is to hear him deejay to not only get to hear his creative works along side supportive fans but also to hear the selections of music that has inspired him throughout his life.
