Over the last 25-plus years, DJ Premier may be one of Hip-Hop’s most meaningful introducers of new artists. From Nas to Mobb Deep, Jeru The Damaja to Royce Da 5’9″, Preemo’s music finds the greatness in many MCs.

Fisher is the latest D.I.T.C.-backed artist. Showbiz and company have yet another Bronx, New York lyricist who appreciates the hard MC style. “Fish Over Premier” links Fisher with Works Of Mart. The Gang Starr icon chops down a sample familiar to MF DOOM and Kurious Jorge Heads in his own rhythm, and weaves in elements from DMX and Grand Puba (two additional luminaries from above Manhattan). Fisher shows that he’s a no-games artist, who aims to uphold the say-something standard of MC’ing. Backed by Show, Finesse, and company—with Premier on board now, this commands attention.

Is Fish’ next in a long line of MCs with one of Hip-Hop’s most sought out cosigns?
