Royce Da 5'9", DJ Premier and Adrian Younge sit down for an interview about their upcoming "PRhyme" project.
On December 9th, Detroit-based lyrical assassin Royce Da 5'9" and living legend DJ Premier will be uniting under the name PRhyme (pronounced like "prime") for a self-titled album. With Preemo solely sampling music by the talented, retro-minded musician Adrian Younge, and a whole host of big-name guestsÂ showing up for verses,Â PRhyme should be quite the listen. Last week, we caught up with Royce, Premier and Younge to get the inside scoop on their collaboration.
First, Preemo describes how the project grew from a Slaughterhouse EP to a collaborative project between him, Royce and Adrian with the help of Shady Records A&RÂ Mike Herard. He then goes on to detail the process of sampling from one artist's catalog (Younge's) for the entire album, which is something that he's never done in all of his 24 years in the game.
He and Royce go on to explain how entrants in our "PRhyme Time" contestÂ will be judged, giving some tough but helpful advice to their aspiring collaborators. Later on, all three express their interest in doing a PRhyme tour and second album. Hopefully, those will both come to fruition, but first, be sure to copÂ PRhymeÂ when it drops on December 9th.
