DJ Premier releases ‘Our Streets’ featuring A$AP Ferg.
Just hours after the relaunch of Payday Records, the iconic record label has released its first song â€œOur Streetsâ€ featuring legendary producer DJ Premier and A$AP Ferg, which is available today via digital retailers everywhere. ‘Our Streets‘ is the first song released by hip-hop and EDM pioneer Patrick Moxeyâ€™s newly relaunched record label. DJ Premier is reunited with former Gang Starr manager Moxey as the first artist to release music on Payday Records.
â€œOur Streetsâ€ is a true New York hip-hop track, combining DJ Premierâ€™s signature beats and A$AP Fergâ€™s versatile style to create a classic, raw and energetic sound. The song marks the first time the legendary DJ and rap star have worked together, despite both being prominent figures of the New York hip-hop scene for years.
â€œIt’s a dream to be able to work with the legendary DJ Premier on this recordâ€ stated Ferg. â€œPreemo has worked with all the NYC hip hop icons and greats – Nas, Biggie, Guru, Hov, KRS-one, and The Lox. Just knowing I was working with him pushed me as an MC.â€
“With Ferg, or anybody I work with, they already know my history so they know that I come from the 90s eraâ€ DJ Premier said. â€œFerg 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.”
