Stat Quo, Royce Da 5'9 & Phonte - Homage To Premier

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Stat Quo
  • Track: Homage to Premier ft. Royce Da 5'9 & Phonte
  • Feat. Royce da 5'9", Phonte
  • Producer: Focus
  • Album: Checks & Balances Mixtape

On a new mixtape cut, three of the game's most talented emcees join forces with an up-and-coming producer to pay tribute to one of the most important individuals in East Coast hip-hop history – a man who, in addition to working with MC Guru in Gang Starr, helped everyone from KRS-One and Big Daddy Kane to Nas, Biggie, and Jay-Z create genre-defining cuts. Off the upcoming Checks and Balances Mixtape (due out February 24th), Homage to Premier was obviously a labor of love for all involved; Focus' beat finds him showcasing his talent as an impressionist as Stat Quo, Royce Da 5'9, and Little Brother emcee Phonte each step up to the plate to spit nostalgic, punchline-filled odes to the prolific DJ/producer, and the record's hook splices together quotable lines from several of the emcees Premier helped make famous. In addition to putting smiles on the faces of old-school heads, Homage to Premier is sure to raise the younger set's awareness of one of hip-hop's behind-the-scenes legends.
