You know that one dream that you know one day will come true, but you don’t expect it to happen so quickly? Well, it came true for me this past Saturday!
The dream i’m referring to is attending a DJ Premier show, be in the presence of greatness. I spent countless hours reading about Preemo and watching his sets/interviews on YouTube. This past Saturday I got to do just that, thanks to my White Label Radio team! I had the privilege of watching him set-up during sound check. After sound check, he started walking over to our interview area. I think he noticed I was in “awe” because he walked straight up to me and introduced himself. I’m pretty sure I froze for a second and then I replied with a huge smile on my face. Listening to our host, Melloe Won, interviewing him was nothing short of amazing. He gave us a glimpse of what the vibe was like in the recording studio with some of the greats, meeting Guru and so much more. I can’t wait for you guys to watch the full interview! After the interview, I was able to take a picture with him, and of course the inner journalist in me had to ask him about that long awaited DJ Premier & Nas album we’ve all been waiting for. He replied with, “I’ll make something happen, just for you.” Clearly, he wasn’t serious, but it still made me the happiest girl ever. Needless to say, he was very humble and down to earth. For those that don’t know, DJ Premier is responsible for production on some of the most amazing albums, including my personal favorite, Illmatic.
With that being said, Dream BIG and work hard!
