    Premier is a fuckin legend no doubt, but The Alchemist is that new wave. If he decides to pass the torch, he should pass it to The Alchemist.

    grandpa premier needs to sit his old ass down. all his beats sound the same and are boring as fuck. he should hand the torch to new producers such as lex luger, t-minus, boi-1da, 40, left brain and hit-boy.
