View Full Version : DJ Premier Talks Nas Collabo Album, Producing For Whitney Houston

10-14-2006, 04:31 PM

DJ Premier has already worked with one pop diva this year - on Christina Aguilera's Back to Basics album – and it looks like Whitney Houston is next.

“I'm not gonna jinx it but there [have] been talks and I've met with the right people so if that goes down I'd love to give her a big record,” he said.

“I know what she needs. I'm not gonna give her a record about rolling on dubs and all that just because that's what's current. That's beneath her. She can go left field as long as the record's banging and she sings it well."

"She deserves another chance," he added in support of her well-publicised troubles. "I won't misguide her career and give her some bullshit."

Also, earlier this year there were rumours Nas would feature on an LP exclusively produced by DJ Premier.

Although one Premier track has been confirmed for his upcoming Hip-Hop Is Dead…The N album, a proper collaboration between the two legends is still on the cards.

"We did one song for the [new] album but we haven't mixed it yet. [Nas] told me he wants the next album to be the one that we finally do, just me and him, all the way through - just a Premier and Nas album. We'll see if that goes down," he said.

Hip-Hop Is Dead…The N has been rescheduled to a December 19th release date.

Speaking on the release date, DJ Premier said, “I think he should wait 'til next year, personally, to really make a classic bomb. He can do it but I think he needs more time. Whatever he chooses, he's got my support."
