7 Things We Learned From Primo During The PRhyme AMA

When it comes to creating a truly interactive experience with your core fan base, nothing beats an AMA, which stands for Ask Me Anything – a popular format hosted on Reddit (the front page of the internet). Producers, actors, scientists and even the likes of Obama have spent time answering questions big and small from fans and supporters across the globe. Last week PRhyme, the duo of Royce The 5’9 and DJ Premier, took to the platform to talk to fans who had just finished fully taking in the NPR leak of their long-awaited album. During the conversation Primo dropped some serious nuggets – check out the highlights after the jump.

1. Premier revealed he has an unreleased 2Pac accapella in the stash:

“I never Produced with 2Pac but I have a song for whenever I need to use it on accapella. One day It will come out when I put a beat to it.”

2. He opened up about rumoured beef with biggie smalls:

“Me and Big never had beef. There was some issues regarding one of my artists Jeru The Damaja but that got taken care of…me and BIG cleared it up before he died.”

3. He is reconciling with Jeru Da Damaja:

“…he and I are totally fine. We split over a business decision. We are gonna work this year on some new stuff.”

4. He’s working on an album with Pete Rock in 2015:

“As for the Pete Rock Album, we are doing a single in January to start the project. He is producing half of it and I am doing the other half.”

5. He revealed some of his fave vinyls in his collection

“My David Axelrod LP’s, all of my Jackson 5 Albums, James Brown, Parliament, Ohio Players, Curtis Mayfield, Al Green, Willie Hutch, Aretha Franklin, Luther Vandross, MAZE, Minnie Ripperton, Earth, Wind & Fire, Barry White and Henry Mancini.”

6. He dropped his top 5 albums (in no particular order)

“1. Eric B. & Rakim–“Paid In Full” 2. Run-DMC-“Raising Hell” 3. LL Cool J–“Radio” 4. Boogie Down Productions–“Criminal Minded” 5. Public Enemy–“Yo ! Bum Rush The Show”

7. There is unreleased Big L music – which makes us excited!
