DJ Premier | Five Star | Clubs & Concerts | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: Fri., Aug. 10 2012

This is your chance to tell legend and icon DJ Premier one more time that he and rapper Nas need to finish the full-length album that at least some of us have been imagining—for nearly two decades, mind you—as a mythical panacea for hip-hop music. Here's your chance to plead with the Gangstarr producer about how that dream collaboration would beckon little, black baby angels wearing gold chains and shell-toed Adidas shoes down from the heavens and into the streets, where they would undoubtedly rescue the hood and deliver salvation to every single speaker in the world. Here's some advice: Give up your hopes. That dream project seems even more improbable given the recent release of Nas' Life Is Good, devoid of any Premo beats. Instead, simply bask in the presence of a phenomenal producer, hard at work on the ones and twos for all of your dance and nostalgia needs. These monthly 9th Wonder/True School parties have gained a formidable reputation for furnishing Raleigh's nightlife with an urban halo. Tonight, with the addition of a Gangstarr sound saint, the light should be most radiant. —Eric Tullis
