DJ Premier’s D&D Studios (HeadQCourterz) Closes

Illmatic. Reasonable Doubt. Ready To Die. Almost every Gang Starr and every Premo track since '92 was recorded here. But yesterday, Dj Premier announced that D&D Studios  (also known as HeadQCourterz Studios) will close its doors forever. The famous recording home will be eventually converted to one of many luxury apartments, as Premo stated in one of his recent Instagram post: #RichClownsRuinManhattan. But this won't stop the legendary producer from making timeless hits, as he plans to record at Kaufman Astoria Studios in Queens NY. I am sure the HeadQCourterz name will move with him. Check out his IG photos below of Premier and his final moments at D&D studios.

- GangStarr Forever!!!
