DJ Premier is a producer and DJ, and was half of the hip hop duo Gang Starr. He is now half of the hip hop duo PRhyme, together with Royce Da 5’9″.
Prince Paul is a producer, DJ and musician perhaps best known for his work on De La Soul’s 1989 seminal debut album 3 Feet High and Rising. Most recently, he, along with Ladybug Mecca, Don Newkirk and Rodrigo Brandão, formed Brookzill, whose debut album, Throwback to the Future, is out now.
DJ Premier and Prince Paul are two of the most influential DJs and producers in hip-hop history. The legends recently sat down at Sonos’ flagship store in New York City to talk staying dope while aging, the gear they’re currently using, stylistic changes in hip-hop through the years, how Premier was too afraid to dress like Prince (but did wear a full Devo suit), and Prince Paul and Ladybug Mecca’s fantastic new Brazilian/hip-hop project Brookzill!
