[NEW RELEAESES] DYNAMIC DUO, DJ PREMIER
And now, by collaborating with legendary American hip-hop artist DJ Premier, the duo has won another victory for the local rap scene. Premier previously worked with renowned musicians Jay-Z, Kanye West and The Black Eyed Peas.
Their first collaboration album “A Giant Step,” consists of two tracks - an eponymous lead track and a more rebellious rap entitled “Animal.”
Neither song veers too much from the duo’s familiar vibe, except for the masterful scratches and concrete-hard beats from Premier.
Billboard recently praised their collaboration as “one of the most iconic moments in Korean music history.” So it appears as if “A Giant Step” is set to be a promising step for hip-hop’s future in Korea.
