MP3:DJ Przm Presents the Letter People
Today is the Three Year Anniversary of DJ Przm passing. Cashola uploaded one of Przm’s classic compilation’s the Letter People to the Get Right Blog about an hour ago.
Przm would produce 18 song albums and sell them at the Fonoluts Hip Hop night until he lost interest in them, and then these cds would dissappear. I think 50 copies of the Letter People existed and I’ve had it stolen from me twice, and i probably stole a copy from someone at some point. So i am really happy Cashola uploaded it.
Pos can correct me, but this cd is prolly from 2000-2001.
The cd itself is raw, minimal Hip Hop that invokes but doesn’t bite Wu Tang, Pharoah Monche if he was an asshole and Mobb Deep.
For younger doods, imagine 30 black doods(a couple white doods) that could rap, dress, pull a fly girl,drink and fight partying at Bernie’s and on like Blake and Patterson.(OSU campus for non-Columbus people.Which is now Twee or jocks.)
No wonder this was part of an international movement.
And P was their ring leader rolling around in Daymon’s white van.
if you want to test drive a song, I suggest track 12 “Mmm Brilliant” that features Jakki, Flip the Early Riser, Copywrite and Przm boasting the ability to do some terrible things to people then let that song roll in to track 13.
But all 18 songs are classic which is funny that Przm could just churn these out seeing it takes cats 2 years to just get mixtapes out over other people’s instrumentals. And we thought P was lazy..
The CD features MHZ, 3MS, Spitball, Met,Daymon, and a zillion other doods going in on Przm’s gritty production.
