Mos Def - Mathematics and Other DJ Premier Beats

I'm a big fan of DJ Premier, and consider him a big influence on what i do. He creates amazing "bounce" in his beats unlike most others, through smart chops, precise cuts and syncopated drums and everything he touches seems to turn to gold. Coming from Texas, he made the move with Guru (who was from Boston, RIP) to New York, and he really gave New York Hip Hop it's trademark sound. I'm gonna showcase a few of my favorite DJ Premier beats.

Mos Def - Mathematics

Gang Starr feat. Big Shug and Freddy Fox - The Militia



Charli Baltimore - Everybody Wanna Know



Non Phixion - Rock Stars



Das EFX - Real Hip Hop



Gang Starr feat. Nice & Smooth - DWYCK



Group Home - Livin' Proof



Rakim - It's Been A Long Time



Jay Z - A Million And One Questions



Notorious B.I.G. - Kick In The Door



Bahamadia - 3 The Hard Way
