A Conversation with DJ Premier: One Of The Best Yet

DJ Premier is a pioneer of hip-hop and an absolute living legend, he has accomplished an astonishing amount in his career and just about a month ago he released his latest masterpiece, a brand new Gang Starr album titled One Of The Best Yet. I grew up a huge fan of Gang Starr in my adolescent years as I am sure many of the people reading this did as well, so when I first head about this new album I was in complete shock, partially because their last album prior to this came out way back in 2003 and also because it has been nearly a decade since the passing of the legendary emcee Guru who made up of one half of the group. This was the first time in his career that DJ Premier had to piece together an album without Guru by his side helping him compose it, he had previously recorded verses that we anywhere from 10-20 years old and he somehow managed to craft it into a tremendous + memorable body of work.

If you rocked with the song, you’ll absolutely dig this video. Right off the bat, I was really impressed by the camera work. The shots contained immense professionalism but still had some DIY vibes in there, which perfectly encapsulates Ant: A kid who is killing it, but staying true to himself at the same time. This upbeat video will honestly have you wanting to dance around your room or wherever you’re watching it. At this point, I’d be lying if I said Ant …

Yellow Hearts – [Ant Saunders]

New Jersey native Ant Saunders is slowly becoming a very well known face to the public eye. After releasing his hit single titled “Yellow Hearts” in June of this year, the growth as of recently has been hard to miss since it has reached the number 1 spot on the Global Viral 50 Spotify charts. I had the opportunity to speak to Ant the other day about his journey and his musical process, nonetheless something I’m sure everyone is curious about at this point. In regards to getting into music, Ant said that he “started producing around middle school and he would just record with a USB mic.” As it is for most kids, Ant said music was “always a dream of mine but I never took it as serious as I should have”, until now of course. Saunders does everything himself, keeping the production, writing, and engineering in-house and self-sufficient. This song specifically is one of those that you hear once and remember forever, just the same affect that any big record has.
