Legendary Hip Hop producer DJ Premier famously worked with emcee Chubb Rock (along with Jeru The Damaja and O.C.) on 1995’s “Return of the Crooklyn Dodgers” from the Clockers soundtrack. In a new interview with England’s DJ 279, reposted at the DJPremierBlog.com, Premo says he hopes to work with Chubb again.
In recent years, Chubb Rock, who mentored The Lady of Rage in the early ’90s, has been working with Maryland emcee Wordsmith. The pair released Bridging The Gap in 2009.
Having just produced “Second Place” for Slaughterhouse member Royce Da 5’9 from his Success Is Certain album, Premier told DJ 279 “Definitely,” when asked if he would be working on Slaughterhouse’s Shady Records debut. For the quartet’s 2009 album on E1 Entertainment, Premier’s HeadQuarterz studios in Midtown Manhattan was where much of the project was recorded.
