  • Artist: DJ Premier
  • Track: 5%
  • Feat. KRS-One
  • Producer: DJ Premier
  • Album: Year Round Records: Get Used to Us

So here’s how it goes. Everyone who saw the words “DJ Premier”, “KRS-ONE” and “Grand Puba” in the headline and knocked over their grandma to press play – you and I are friends. Everyone else? I’m watching y’all with a wary eye. After a few weeks of radio rip foolery, the aforementioned trifecta’s single, 5%, has finally emerged in high-quality form, and the result’s as dope as we had hoped. Primo sets the stage with his trademark balance of knocking drums and soaring strings (does he ever fail?), setting up KRS perfectly for an intelligently vicious flow and hook that the world would do well to listen to. Add in a guest verse from Brand Nubian vet Grand Puba, whose nasal, “he just said what?” flow will have my fellow ‘80s babies thinking of the good ol’ days, and you’ve got a track overflowing with old school integrity yet is thankfully devoid of old school nostalgia. 5% is only the tip of the iceberg – the rest can be found on Premier’s new compilation album, Year Round Record: Get Used to Us, available now.
