DJ Premier Hears Elmatic Instrumentals
I'm not sure if it's a testament to how well executed the Illmatic to Elmatic concept was, or more a reflection of the lack of quality rap albums recently released, but Elmatic is undeniably my favorite album of the last few years. With that said, I have two observations watching this video. (1) It appears that Primo is actually hearing these beats for the first time and is genuinely impressed. (2) I always thought the story behind the Memory Lane beat was that it was originally a Gang Starr track that Guru passed on. However, the story Premier tells in this video is completely different. Can anybody confirm or refute my previous understanding here? Am I just making ish up in my old age...
