KRS-One, DJ Premier to Collaborate on ‘Return of the Boom Bip’

Almost 17 years after their first collaboration, hip hop legends KRS-One and DJ Premier are finally working on a full length release. The revered rapper and producer first joined forces in 1993 on KRS’ ‘Return of the Boom Bap,’ which featured Premier-produced gems like ‘Outta Here,’ ‘Black Cop’ and ‘Higher Level.’ Premier laced KRS with seven of the album’s total 14 tracks, as the two crafted a sound that made an indelible mark on the face of hip hop.

Now, KRS and Premier are finally releasing a full length album together. The forthcoming project ‘Return of the Boom Bip’ will be released on Premier’s own label, Year Round Records, and will act as a sequel to the KRS classic.

Premier discussed the record with during this past NBA All-Star Weekend. “It’s going to be one of the illest albums of 2010,” he boasted. While the album has no scheduled release date, confirmed features include Q-Tip, Grand Puba and Ice-T.

The pair last collaborated on Nike’s “Classic” track, which also featured Kanye West, Rakim and Nas.

Premier is also currently working on albums with Compton rapper MC Eiht, longtime Gangstarr-affiliate Big Shug and others, while KRS and Buckshot‘s ‘Survival Skills’ album was released last year.
