DJ Premier’s Underacknowledged Cuts


Here we have a list by hip hop’s most respected producer DJ Premier. DJ Premier listed cuts that he felt were not widely recognized. The main reasons is that most of these tracks are 12″ b-sides that weren’t included on the artist’s album. For example, you have songs like The Do Do by Biz Markie that was released as the b-side to “Vapors” but never included anywhere else. Then you have songs like It’s The Beat by Hollis Crew, better known as Run DMC, that never gets mentioned as they changed their names just for this one record. After you have underground cuts that Premier feels you need to hear! You also got tracks such as Yes You May & Any Day Can Be Your Last that includes Big L & Half-A-Mil’s first rhymes on wax. The list basically gives you you tracks that you probably missed… (except for How About Some Hardcore)

Note: This list was made in 1998.
Shoutouts to the Ego Trip Staff for making the greatest hip-hop book ever! If you don’t have it, you can get it here.

Thanks to Ho1ogramz for hooking me up with 3 tracks that I was missing.
