"I wanna be the change that I wanna see,” says Royce Da 5’9”, who linked with DJ Premier to create ‘PRhyme2,’ their second collaborative album. “I don’t wanna sit around and talk about the state of hip hop and what everybody is doing wrong.” For Premo it’s a labor of love. “I don’t do it cause I have to, I love doing it,” says the legendary DJ / producer. “It’s still fun to me to go in there and make a jam and put it out there to the audience that loves what we do.” We sat down with two legends in the MASS APPEAL studio to talk about defying the rap generation gap—and why Premo wanted Lil Uzi Vert on this album. This is a conversation everybody needs to hear—from old heads to newjacks. Listen up.
