Posted By on February 15, 2011

     Hip Hop producer, and one-half of Gang Starr, recently discussed who his all-time favorite producers are. First speaking about the late soul music legend James Brown, Premo then goes on to discuss his other favorite music creators.

"Definitely [gotta name] James Brown," Premier told DJ Vlad. "Just the way he commanded his band and when I was a kid, it was called soul music. When James Brown came around, it was called funk. To create funk, not everybody could do funky stuff…Marley Marl is the ultimate hip-hop producer to me. He's the James Brown of hip-hop to me. No one did it like him. Mantronix. He always had the newest drum machines first and he always mastered how to work it." (Vlad TV)
