DJ Premier has just announced a partnership with the iconic Payday Records imprint, which helped launch the careers of Hip Hop greats like Showbiz & A.G., JAY-Z, and WC and the Maad Circle.
Helmed by Patrick Moxey, Gang Starr’s former manager, the label’s first track is a collaborative single between Preemo and A$AP Ferg, something the legendary turntablist mentioned on social media Wednesday (November 1).
But as Preemo was discussing the Payday Records endeavor with DX, he also casually mentioned PRhyme 2 with Royce Da 5’9 was, in fact, completed. The highly anticipated album serves as the sequel to the duo’s 2014 debut, PRhyme.
“I’m just helping him [Moxey] get it launched by doing a grip of singles and then he’ll take it from there since he managed me through our entire Gang Starr career. We had a great journey together, so I’m happy to rock with him. I’m still doing my Year Round and TTT [To The Top] labels. NYGz is next on Year Round. Well, PRhyme 2 is actually next, but me and Royce [Da 5’9] share PRhyme Records. We just finished it this morning.”
Although there’s no specific release date as of yet, Preemo hopes it will be released at the top of 2018.
