As one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all time, DJ Premier continues to fulfill many rappers’ dreams and remains active in the rap game. He recently released the boom-bap track “Runway” with two highly skilled and acclaimed lyricists: Westside Gunn and Rome Streetz. Their styles, which have evolved over decades of the sub-genre’s growth, complement each other perfectly. While the beat may not be as dark or gritty as a typical Griselda production, it showcases Preemo’s craftsmanship and Gunn and Rome’s versatility. Overall, this collaboration embodies the essence of the good ol’ days with a modern touch.
This is dedicated to all the purists who love boom-bap and disc-scratching.
