In late September,DJ Premier released a full-length Project with singer-songwriter Torii Wolf. Now, the legendary hip-hop producer is back with a new single featuring Harlem rapper AS$AP Ferg. It’s called “Our Streets” and marks the duo’s first joint effort.
“With Ferg, or anybody I work with, they already know my history so they know that I come from the 90s era,” DJ Premier added. “Ferg just automatically said ‘Don’t do what I’ve been doing on my albums — I want you to do a Preemo style and let me show I can rap to that,’ so I was like ‘let’s do it.’ Everybody was happy off jump — no suggestions, no ‘I think we should go this direction’ — it was an automatic in, out, done, in one day.”
“Our Streets” is the first single from the newly resurrected Payday Records, which celebrated its 25th Anniversary on Thursdaywhen it was relaunched by Ultra Music founder Patrick Moxey. DJ Premier is the label’s first signed artist, followed by Co Signing New Orleans rapper Pell, rapper OJ Da Juiceman, upcoming UK hip-hop star Yung Fume, and hip-hop group Gloss Gang.
