It’s a tall task getting so many rappers involved with the making of one album, and so, just the same way JS-1 utilized the assistance of DJ Muggs and Eclipse for “How We Think,” he called in the help of a special friend, DJ Premier, to get in touch with Lil’ Fame and Bumpy Knuckles, who are both featured on “Reppin’ NY” along with Joell Ortiz. Now, JS-1 is releasing a special mix and master of the song, done by DJ Premier himself. “Once the song was recorded and I laid the cuts down, Premier asked me if he could mix and master that song,” explains JS-1. Busy schedules kept Premier’s mix off the album, but, Premo recently sat down behind the boards and added his signature studio magic. “As a man of his word, and someone who truly respects and enjoys good hip-hop, Preem still took the time to mix it, just so we can blast it out to all the DJs and real hip-hop fans,” says JS-1. “The mix is better now, of course. I can’t thank him enough for his help.”
