After the relaunch of Payday Records, the label delivers it’s the first single titled “Our Streets” featuring legendary producer DJ Premier and rapper A$AP Ferg. DJ Premier is reunited with former Gang Starr manager Moxey as the first artist to release music on Payday Records.
Over the infectious DJ Premier’s production, “Our Streets” brings out the essence of New York hip-hop with A$AP Ferg lending bars to over the energetic instrumental.
“It’s a dream to be able to work with the legendary DJ Premier on this record” stated Ferg. “Preemo has worked with all the NYC hip hop icons and greats – Nas, Biggie, Guru, Hov, KRS-one, and The Lox. Just knowing I was working with him pushed me as an MC.”
“With Ferg, or anybody I work with, they already know my history so they know that I come from the 90s era” DJ Premier said. “Ferg just automatically said ‘Don’t do what I’ve been doing on my albums – I want you to do a Preemo style and let me show I can rap to that,’ so I was like ‘let’s do it.’ Everybody was happy off jump – no suggestions, no ‘I think we should go this direction’ – it was an automatic in, out, done, in one day.”
