Reconstructing Pizza At Primo’s With DJ Jaycee

DJ Jaycee (Luda's DJ and member of DJ Drama's crew the Aphilliates) makes some bangin' mix tapes. Dude is diverse too, dropping everything from a best of Michael Jackson to a best of DJ Premier. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a life long die hard Premier fan, so it goes without saying that his Primo tape has been in non stop rotation at my house. I'm happy to say that I got to do a Reconstruction for The Smoking Section with Jaycee about his Premier tape, Pizza at Primo's. To read the article, click here. To read Jaycee's reaction to the interview on his personal blog, click here.
To watch Jay cut up some Justin Timberlake, watch the video below.

Wherever I May Find Her

Here is a small snippet of a mix tape that I started during college and never finished. I began working on it towards the end of the summer of '05. It was supposed to be a love story told through music and movie dialogue. I know, I know, DJ Neil Armstrong already did it with Bittersweet. This one was going to try for another lane altogether. Wherever I May Find Her was going to be about being in love with a girl even if you know things aren't going to work out. So anyway, here it is. Post feedback if you please. Just as a heads up, sound quality is less than great.

Wherever I May Find Her Sample
