Hip Hop's own legendary producer, DJ Premier, recently let it slip that he once produced a track for Jay-Z on which Jigga took shots and dissed multiple artists and people. Although he did not give out any details or any targets that Jay-Z took aim at, Preemo did say the song was created in the mid 1990s'.
"There's a [unreleased] Jay-Z [song] where he was getting a little slick at a lot of people," Premier revealed in an interview. "I won't even say their names. He said a lot of slick sh*t about a lot of people from the era he was coming through when he was just coming out with [1996's] Reasonable Doubt. He was airing them out and doing it properly. If he had done it, he would have been respected for it. He did it so dope, and so cleverly, and he was so witty with it. But he erased it, so it's going to be a memory I take to the grave. But it's all gravy because Jay and I are good friends so I would never violate him like that." (The Well Versed)
