Last month DJ Premier and A$AP Ferg joined forces for Our Streets, a new song released to commemorate the relaunch of Payback Records.
In a day the song's official video comes out. Complex's Shawn Setaro reached out to Premo and the Hood Pope to enquire about how the collaboration came to fruition.
"I was reaching out to Primo just to look for some music," Ferg said. "I wanted to do a different style of music than I usually do. I really wanted to write, and they had the perfect beats for it. Primo, he's a legend first of all. Second of all, he knows my family, my background, and he knows where I come from. We always link up in places like Japan and Europe. He's always flying and we'll bump into each other. We've always admired each other, but now we finally got a chance to make time for each other and get in the studio."
Primo also talked about who he hopes to collaborate with next; name dropping André 3000 and Outkast.
"I reached out to André 3000 because he's part of that Sony roster with Outkast and as a soloist," Premier said. "I’d love to get him on one of them. Hopefully I can get that to happen. It hasn't come to light yet, but I would love to get him on a joint. It could be Outkast or a solo joint. I would love to get 3 Stacks. I know he is selective on what he does, but I would destroy that record."
