With all the classic Hip-Hop being posted recently, I figured to post a new school song with an old school sound. This remix of Classic has one of the fattest beats I’ve heard and the credit goes to DJ Premier from Houston, TX. One of the best, if not the best, Hip-Hop DJs of all time. He was a half of the duo Gangstarr for 12 years and has produced unbelievable tracks. Here is just another beautiful craft from Premier with some heavy hitters delivering the verses. Check it out for sure.

Check it out for sure if you dig real Hip-Hop.
