I still have a place in my heart for hip hop....yes it has been a long time since I bought a record or cd, but I still can listen to a straight rap song all day. As far as I can remember I have loved Gang Starr. It has to be because of DJ Premier first and foremost. I love Guru too, but the beat makes the song kiddies. I remember always reading the inserts or record sleeves of the cd's or album's I would buy and look to see where he found those god damn amazing samples. So I did some research of my favorite Premier produced tracks and here is a little taste of the original and the new version. Enjoy friends.... I miss the 1990's. Oh and BTW, Pete Rock produced the first track below by Nas...... Its probably one of the best best produced tracks in hip hop history!!
