*Although DJ Premier didn’t get the prestigious title of VIBE’s Best Producer of All Time, he is still doing his thing and is busy producing it up all over the map. He told reporters in Chicago that he is planning to release full-length albums with MC Eiht and KRS-One, and guess who else? The one and only, legendary vocalist Chaka Khan.
The producer remarkably whittled down his latest project from a 40 track album to a 20, but is planning to add a few more special releases to the final product. “Don’t Hesitate,” the official single of the album is expected to be released pretty soon.
But that’s not all folks! Busier than ever, Premier has also worked on NYG’z upcoming project, “Hustle’s Union: Local NYG” along with Jersey lyricist Nick Java’s album, “Destination Unknown” and few other emcees across the nation.
Premier’s collaborations with KRS-One and Chaka Khan ain’t no small fry, one song projects. Like they say, he’s put his foot in it and has worked on full-length albums.
“Yes, she trusts my vision and she knows about my respect for her Rufus stuff and her solo stuff and she understand I get it,” he commented. “Our conversation was so great; I’m sending her some stuff… and she’s all excited and I’m excited.”
Look out for Premier’s release of an EP with some collabos with KRS and Grand Puba called “5 Percenters” and a few other hit tracks.
