It would turn out to be a prophetic decision to adopt the moniker “Premier,” as DJ Premier is widely considered to be one of the best DJs and producers of all time. To honor Premo, the creators of the popular hip-hop podcast “Take It Personal”—Philaflava, Kevlar and DJ 360—have compiled a six-hour tribute mega mix.
As Complex reported, the two-part mix highlights DJ Premier’s work as one-half of the group Gang Starr along with the late, great MC Guru. Premier has also collaborated with some of hip-hops biggest and most influential names. The mix touches on Premo’s work with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, The Notorious B.I.G., Jay Z, Nas, Common, Ras Kass, Big L and many, many more. As Complex also pointed out, the mix contains classics like “DWYCK” and “New York State of Mind” as well as more obscure tracks. You can listen to both parts of the mix below.
