Legendary producer DJ Premier teams up with Brooklyn’s Casanova released their brand new single “WUT U SAID?” Premier comes off recent success with Drake’s platinum album Scorpion on which he produced “Sandra’s Rose” and Casanova with his EP Commissary, both of which were released on 6-29-18.
“Making decisions from a DJ/producer/fan perspective is always my approach when I make a new joint for an artist,” said Premier. “Since the Payday deal is a four-single deal, how do you follow the A$AP Ferg record ‘Our Streets’? I love hardcore hip-hop so much, which mentally took me into a darker place and I immediately thought of Casanova 2x.”
“I love ‘Don’t Run’ and ‘Set Trippin’ and saw the impact it has on the clubs,” Premier continued. “I told him that I want to attack the same vibe, but change the tempo into the Preemo tempo. He was there when I made the beat, so he immediately recited the hook to me and I was already sold! I was hoping that he would do his trademark ‘B-B-BOOOM’ which gets me so amped, so when he put this in the song I knew we had a winner!”
Throughout the 90s, Premier played an integral role in Payday Records bringing artists to the label and producing many the label’s biggest hits including “Come Clean” and “Supa Star.” In November 2017, the label relaunched with Premier’s track “Our Streets” featuring A$AP Ferg, marking the first time Premier and Ferg ever worked together.
