One of the most debated tracks of the year has been J. Cole‘s “1985.” A detailed letter to the new generation of hip-hop, it’s lead to allegations of escalating feud with newer artists, as well as olive branches crossing the age-gap in hip-hop. That connection has expanded with the DJ Premier remix of the track, which dropped today.

Premier – who many consider hip-hop’s all-time greatest producer – has always been a Cole fan. Once he heard the track on Cole’s K.O.D., he requested the vocals and has given us one of the hardest boom-bap style records of the year.

One-half of legendary duo Gangstarr, Premier has produced classics for everyone from Biggie to Nas to JAY-Z to A$AP Ferg to even Christina Aguilera and Twenty One Pilots. His version of “1985” is absolutely tremendous, and we have it for you on Go 95.3!

Drake‘s “Nice For What” is back at the top of the charts!

– Stepping up his social media game, Eminem shared a story of actor/Batman Val Kilmer seeing him naked.

– Two days after performing at Soundset, Evidence and Westside Gunn link up for a collaboration.

– Emerging from his hiatus, No Malice weighed-in on former Clipse partner Pusha-T‘s feud with Drake.
