Dj Premier sits with Life and Times and talks Nas and Illmatic

Dj Premier sits with Life and Times and talks Nas and Illmatic

L+T: I’m sure you’re getting sick of the Illmatic questions, but mine is different! From the three tracks you produced on the album, I definitely feel the connection between the instrumentation along with the lyrics – they go hand-in-hand. When you worked with Nas on those three records, how were you able to decide what sounds would actually work with the lyrics? It’s such a real story, the lyrics are poignant.

He rapped over it and I was like, ‘Alright, we’ll keep it.’
