DJ Premier wins. Whatever competition there was for The Life Of Pablo remixes, Preemo just snatched the crown.
After the likes of OG Maco and Stefan Ponce lead the pack with top-notch remixes, DJ Premier, in my opinion, hopped in the lead with signature street gutter sounds and scratches to lay underneath Kanye’s self-loathing lyrics. As for why DJ Premier, who’s worked plenty with Kanye in the past, remixed the song?
“I’m a street DJ and when a good a cappella is naked, you put some clothes on it.”
Good for me. Listen to the Preemix below.
