DJ Premier x Bumpy Knuckles f/ Flava Flav – “Shake The Room” | New Music


Legendary producer and the former face of Gang Starr, alongside the late, great Keith “Guru” Elam (RIP), DJ Premier has always held it down for the essence of real hip hop. Not taking any other route into 2012, the famed beatsmith has recently linked up with Gang Starr affiliate Bumpy Knuckles, aka Freddie Foxx, to announce a collaboration album dubbed KoleXXXion, and today we have the record’s first official single in CDQ.

With PE‘s famous clock-sporter Flava Flav on the hook, Preem and Bumpy offer up a spoonful of the dusty product to come with “Shake The Room”. Word on the interstreets is that Busta Rhymes rejected this beat (*gasps*), but at least it was put to good use.

Expect KoleXXXion to be out March 27th via Gracie Productions/Works of Mart, subsequent to the release we will also get a five-track EP from Premo and Foxx on March 5th.
