DJ Premier

DJ Premier is arguably the greatest hip-hop producer of all time. With a creative style that relies on jazz, soul and funk sampling and an impeccable scratch execution, Premier has crafted a style that has influenced countless producers. The instrumentalist half of legendary rap group Gang Starr, Preemo built up a solid foundation for hip-hop that's just as relevant today as it was then. Having produced for almost every rapper you can name (Nas, Jay-Z, Kanye West and Bun B, among others), Premier's prowess isn't limited to hip-hop; he's also worked with pop artists such as Christina Aguilera. Throughout hip-hop's many changes, Premier has remained a stronghold for purists who diligently study the genre.
