DJ Premier promises album will come once Nas is independent.
“Nas has one more album to obligate to Def Jam,” DJ Premier says in the clip. “He said he didn’t really want to do [the joint album] there, he wanted to move on and do it independently, so we could do it how we want it. So I was like, ‘All right, when the time come just holler at me, I’m here.’”
DJ Premier says that his chemistry with Nas is very strong.
“Nas is another one that I have a cool relationship like I have with Royce,” DJ Premier says. “It’s kind of, we may not see each other everyday, or talk to each other all the time but it’s regular. Royce and I have a regular relationship. It’s no big deal, but when it goes down, it goes down. When we get in the lab we both really represent. Same thing with Nas. We pick it where we left out in conversation…If he says, ‘Let’s do it,’ I’m not like, ‘Oh, I’m tired of waiting.’ It’s like he could say I’m ready tomorrow and I’m with it. I’m in no rush. Right now we have PRhyme. Whenever it goes down, it’s going to be natural to do. It’s going to be special because it’s not like anything I’ve done in the history of my career.”
