Primarily known as one of rap’s leading figures of boom bap, DJ Premier has worked extensively in the R&B realm as well, from D’Angelo and Janet Jackson to Miguel and Anderson .Paak. Not to mention, his work with Christina Aguilera on Back To Basics landed him a pair of GRAMMYs.
While newcomer Torii Wolf isn’t the first woman artist Premier has worked with from a non-rap standpoint, her Flow Riiot debut is the first time he has predominately produced an album for an R&B artist as well as for a woman-led project. The New York-reared songstress has now released Flow Riiot, a project that has been in the works for the past year.
Alongside DJ Premier (who produced nine of the album’s fifteen tracks), Flow Riiot also features production from King Of Chill, Mike Zombie (“Pain Killer“) and araabMUZIK (“Body“). Stream it below and cop on iTunes.
