After 30 Years, DMC & DJ Premier Are Finally Working Together (Audio)

After several years of focusing on comics and other passions, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels has been making plans for a comeback to the Rap world. In the next installment of his appearance on Tim Einenkel’s On The Library podcast, D talks about his current music projects. 

The Run-DMC member begins this segment by kicking a fresh new rhyme. He seems to be back on his “ Raising Hell” flow. He raps about exposing today’s MCs for their inability to write and rhyme. As he continues to go after current commercialized rappers, DMC says they could learn a lesson or two from the lyrics of Lauryn Hill and MC Lyte.

After ending his lyrical exercise, DMC talks about several singles that are in the works for his new album. First, he details a remake of “Leadbelly” Huddie’s “Black Betty,” with Skid Row’s front man Sebastian Bach on the vocals, Blink 182’s Travis Barker on the drums and possible participation from the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea. He then reveals that he will be working with DJ Premier for the first time in 30 years. The Hollis native said, “I met with Premo the week before he moved to Queens when D&D Studios closed. DMC is getting ready to record with DJ Premier, and boy have we got something for something for y’all.” Darryl Mac also discusses working on several songs with Guns & Roses’ Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, which he describes as “hardcore, Heavy Metal Thrash Rock.”

DMC seems confident in his return to Hip-Hop. Check out the full podcast here.
