Take It Personal – Exclusive DJ Premier Interview

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

We were fortunate enough to have the greatest producer of all-time, DJ Premier, stop by during our Prodigy tribute show. What we thought would be a 10 minute interview, turned into an hour of reminiscing, great story-telling, laughs and learning things we never knew before about DJ Premier. The full show is available on our website, as well iTunes, Google Play and all other streaming sites. Don’t forget our 6+ hour DJ Premier Tribute we did a few episodes ago as well. You don’t want to miss this exclusive interview. It’s not often DJ Premier does them, and when he does they’re usually brief, but we managed to extract just enough for this special Prodigy tribute show, and we’re thankful for the opportunity. RIP P! –Jason Gloss

I don’t know who T.O.N.Y. is, kinda looks like Termanlogy with a CNN-like name. Either way it’s a Solar diss and I’m all for it. Next up, Freddie Foxxx? –Philaflava

Every Gang Starr Video

Via Jesse Serwer:

Gang Starr, along with sizable doses of Native Tongue, BDP and Juice Crew music, was my perpetual soundtrack ever since I first peeped the visual for “Words I Manifest” on Video Music Box. There was no better and dependable place to go for that good ol’ NYC boom bap (even if Guru was from Boston and Premier is from Texas) than a Gang Starr record.

With that in mind, here is every Gang Starr, and Guru, video in chronological order.

R.I.P. Guru (of Gang Starr)

I woke up this morning to a bunch of texts saying Guru passed away yesterday. I’m writing this in complete disbelief because as much as I knew he was sick, a part of me never ever expected him to die. I wasn’t even aware he had cancer since Solar did not release any information.

Please leave comments of your favorite Gang Starr memories, your favorite albums and stories. I will always remember him as Guru from Gang Starr and nothing more. That memory should stay alive forever. Today is a sad day in hip-hop. Sad that cancer is still taking lives. Sad we lost a true legend in the game and sad because of how this whole situation was handled from day one.

Rest In Peace Keith and my condolences go out to all his loved ones. Below I included our interview with Guru and Solar. It wasn’t his last ever, but it definitely was near the end and despite some of my feelings after the interview, Guru has given me enough hip-hop to remember him and Gang Starr forever. Now excuse me while I put on Daily Operation. – Jason Gloss
