Take It Personal – Exclusive DJ Premier Interview

Thursday, July 6th, 2017
Share Button

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 TakeItPersonalRadio.com, 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

DJ Premier Tribute Show (2 Parts)

Episode 10, The DJ Premier Tribute, is our magnum opus. It’s only right: the greatest producer of all-time receives the greatest tribute of all-time. It was no easy feat selecting and sequencing tracks for this massive 380+ minute show. We hope after listening to the incredible Work of Mart homage, you’ll agree, DJ Premier is the GOAT. We’ve broken Episode 10 into 2 parts because when you cover Premo’s illustrious career, it’s impossible to include every masterpiece in just one show. But don’t worry- within both episodes, we’ve made sure to include all the ill-collabos, obscure remixes and of course, your favorite classics too! –Philaflava

Hit’Em High 2011

Remember Space Jam?  Yes, you do.   And before I go any further, yes, this is an article on Steady Bloggin about Space Jam.  Because it was an instant classic to the 9 year old me, and the 24 year old me wants to tell you about it.

Well it’s the 15 year anniversary of Space Jam, and Austin Kent over at The Good Point (who, interestingly, I went to University with – shouts to Sam Joynt who I roomed with in third year and also writes for GP) decided it’d be pretty cool to celebrate the occasion by recasting The Monstars in 2011.  I agree.

So educated reader, who might already know where this is going, basketball and rap music have gone hand-in-hand for the better half of two decades now.  And for someone like me, that’s awesome since basketball and rap have long been interests number 1 and 1A, in no particular order.  Naturally, including hip hop in films about basketball made sense, whether culturally within the movie itself, or accompanied by way of the soundtrack.  For instance, White Man Can’t Jump had Cypress Hill and Queen Latifah, Hoop Dreams had Ice Cube, Above the Rim with Tupac, He Got Game had an entire soundtrack crafted by Public Enemy, and even a masterpiece like The 6th Man had Doug E. Fresh on a Stevie Wonder remix.  But the cream of the crop, my friends, was The Monstars’ anthem known better as Hit’Em High.

Stealing the idea from Austin (it’s hip hop, we steal shit right?) and applying it to what Wikipedia suggests is “generally regarded as the greatest rap collaboration of all-time” (seriously, it says that), I thought it’d be thumbs up to figure out who could represent The Mean Team in the studio in 2011.
