Preemo provides his signature Boom Bap production, not something the A$ap Mob artist is really known for but Ferg is able to easily ride the beat.
For his verses he delivers some introspective bars and laments his generation for being “stuck on stupid.” He admits working with the legendary Gang Starr producer made him work harder.
“It’s a dream to be able to work with the legendary DJ Premier on this record,” Ferg said in a press release. “Preemo has worked with all the NYC Hip Hop icons and greats — Nas, Biggie, Guru, Hov, KRS-One, and The LOX. Just knowing I was working with him pushed me as an MC.”
Working with the legendary producers style would be a challenge for most newer artists “trap style”, but Ferg insisted Preemo keep his signature style for the single.
“With Ferg, or anybody I work with, they already know my history so they know that I come from the 90s era. Ferg just automatically said, ‘Don’t do what I’ve been doing on my albums. I want you to do a Preemo style and let me show I can rap to that,’ so I was like, ‘Let’s do it.’ Everybody was happy off jump — no suggestions, no ‘I think we should go this direction.’ It was an automatic in, out, done, in one day.”
