DJ Premier has release a music video for 'Remy Rap feat. Remy Ma & Rapsody'. Watch it below.
The visual is the first to accompany 'DJ Premier: Hip Hop 50 Volume 1', the inaugural release from a series that will span ten EPs of new music. In this case, the tune showcases the vocal talents of Bronx MC Remy Ma and Grammy-nominated North Carolina artist, Rapsody.
Made by Atlanta, Georgia director and producer Maya Table, the clip pays homage to 1990s hip-hop culture, with bucket hats, Cuban link chains, and a deft showcase of cutting and scratching courtesy of turntable legend Premier.
The full EP includes tracks with Lil Wayne, Nas, Joey Bada$$, Slick Rick, and Run the Jewels. Forthcoming instalments in the 'Hip Hop 50' series will be curated by Swizz Beatz, No I.D., Take A Daytrip, Will Made Me Do It, Hit-Boy, The Dream, and Tainy. Mass Appeal, the entertainment company responsible, launched the project to commemorate the 50th anniversary of hip-hop's birth next year.
In 2019, DJ Premier re-activated the seminal Gang Starr project, originally a duo featuring himself and the late rapper Guru, who died in 2010, presenting the act's first new music in more than 16 years.
