DJ Premier on Will Sessions' Elmatic Instrumentals

Producer extraordinaire DJ Premier - who laced three beats for the greatest 40 minutes in hip hop (a.k.a. Illmatic) - sat down with the good folks at Fat Beats Records to dissect Will Sessions' covers from eLZhi's Elmatic project, released earlier this year. My favorite moment from this video lies at around the 4:41/4:42 mark, when Premier happily notices an intricate (and intentional) "little late stutter." From what I gathered, that brief look of joy on Premo's face speaks volumes on his love for the music.

Will Sessions' all-instrumental LP drops on September 27th on wax, plastic and digital.
