DJ Premier Refocuses After Death of Guru — Video Interview

Diana Levine

In 2010, DJ Premier had the misfortune of dealing with the loss of Guru — one half of Gang Starr. The producer, who’d long been doing his own thing since parting ties with Guru in the ’90s, managed to move past the scandal surrounding his longtime friend’s death, and do what he does best: jump in the studio and create.

This time around Premier wanted to focus on creating a project that would help build his brand and with that motivation came the ‘Get Use to Us’ album/mixtape, which he released on Dec. 14 via his own imprint, Year Round Records. We sat down with the legendary Premier and his artist Nick Javas — who made a cameo in a recent Pepsi Audible ad alongside B.o.B — at his studio in midtown Manhattan. Check out the video interview after the jump.
