DJ Premier Gives The Backstory to The LOX's "Recognize" on "So Wassup?"

DJ Premier’s behind the music style Youtube show, “So Wassup?” is a “salute to the floppy disc,”  where the legendary producer gives the backstory to some of his iconic instrumentals from his abundant catalog in the era of analog recording.

In the most recent episode, Preemo tells the story of The LOX’s 2000 single “Recognize” from their sophomore studio album, We Are the Streets. The single was the Yonker’s supergroups’ first time working with Preemo after being released from Bad Boy after the “Let the LOX Go” campaign. 

Preemo programed the instrumental while on tour with Gang Starr. He had the idea to sample The LOX’s 1999 single “Ryde or Die,” where the group rapped, “Ruff Ryders, don’t get it twisted ya’ll,” celebrating their independence from the Bad Boy label. 

Check out the entire episode of DJ Premier’s “So Wassup?” below.
