DJ Premier Talks Creating Gang Starr’s “Mass Appeal”

blame it on Meka November 9, 2017

Like he did with JAY-Z’s “A Million And One Questions (Remix)” and Nas‘ “N.Y. State Of Mind,” DJ Premier gave Mass Appeal another tale on the creation of another of his classic records.

This time? Gang Starr‘s “Mass Appeal” (and it’s about time, too).

“We were really making fun of radio, and it became one of our biggest radio records,” says Premier. “We were just saying radio was watering down our stuff, so we were like, ‘You know what? It always sounds like the music in the elevator.’”

When they reminisce…

Let’s go down memory lane…

As a bonus, Primo also speaks on the creation of an unheralded banger, D’AngeloDevil’s Pie.
