Not that I know of.

Yeah - it’s a great listen. Part 1 especially.


#302

I reckon I can ID 98% of this on first listen if there’s anything you’re stuck on


#303

Haha. Yeah. It’s amazing how much of his stuff is so familiar.


#304

Safe. Might hit you up once I’m done with it. Not been anything catch me unawares so far but it’s early days.


#305

That podcast has inspired me to whack together a quick Premo playlist, chuck some stuff in here if you feel like helping out:


#306

Nice! Crazy that you can whack 60+ tunes in a playlist without any deadwood.

Respect for putting Blaq Poet on there. Been listening to Deja Screw and a bit of Screwball lately.


#307

added some. too bad Jay took all his stuff off spotify


#308

Doobie Ashtray is a top ten preem joint.


#309

Nice one, cheers!


#310

Evening News by Cee Lo is awesome too.


#311

love this old rarity that Q-Tip dropped in his RBMA lecture


#312

I think I prefer his Christina Aguilera ones to that.


#313

New Conway tape


#314

what, for real? I liked those CA tracks for what they were but they were much more premier by numbers. Doobie Ashtray is just something else entirely, shows his range a bit.

or do you just not like Dev?


#315

Yeah, never really been a fan of Devin the Dude and just have a far too blinkered view on the type of rappers I like rapping over his beats. I remember hearing Moment of Truth for the first time and even a few tracks on that were starting to push it for me.

Just having a trawl through his list of productions on Wikipedia. Pretty insane.

I hear he’s also really into collecting porn.


#316

Recently checked out that Premo x Royce album. Pretty good actually.


#317

lol we’ve got to get you over this hump. do you like any southern rappers?


#318

Some. All the obvious ones. Geto Boys and a lot of their solo stuff, Too Short, Goodie Mob, 8 Ball & MJG, Three 6 Mafia, the first few Outkast albums… But that sound just never grabbed in the same way that New York and Bay Area stuff did.

I did check for it at the time, but it never really got the same exposure here in the UK in the early 90s when I was at my most malleable sonically. Later 90s/early 00s, when it started getting more popular here, it seemed to be more geared around singles and club nights and I couldn’t really be fucked with all that.

But then Comin’ Out Hard and The World Is Yours are essential albums for me, so… Its complicated. Its a hump I need to climb!


#319

Totally missed this at the time but this Missy tune is a banger


#320

This looks good. Didn’t even know there was a Vol 1.
