Prince Paul - The Redux
On the strength of his work with De La Soul, Gravediggaz, Breeze Brewin and Horror City, I rank Prince Paul as the greatest producer of all time ... yes, even above DJ Premier. That's just how I feel. So you can understand why, when I saw there was a new Prince Paul project out featuring unreleased songs with Breeze Brewin, RZA, and De La Soul — not to mention Long Island Rap favorites Truth Enola and Bumpy Knuckles — I shit on myself. A couple days have passed, I've tossed my doo-doo pants, and now I'm prepared to share this brown-note magic with you (it's a thing; look it up). Stream the single-track mix below.
