DJ Premier- (Turntables)

“I can play a little drums, bass and guitar but not like these guys, so I will stay on the wheels.  In a short four-days of meeting and rehearsing we clicked as if we knew each other for years.  This is a new adventure into expanding my brand.  I will always DJ, produce and be an artist because that’s what artist’s do.  We open new lanes, but never close the lanes that we already opened.  Keeping the roots of your foundation in tact is what gives you longevity. Basically what I’m saying is:  Let’s Ride!!”
