The folks at Lyricist Lounge in concert with Summerstage hosted their now annual show featuring two of hip hop’s legendary DJs and producers — DJ Premier and Pete Rock. Last year, they had a power outage that cut the show short and both DJs were extremely apologetic for it, promising fans that they’d make this year’s show even more memorable. And that did they — after about an hour of both DJs playing a historical tour of soul and old school hip hop, they bought out some special guests. One of those special guests included Brand Nubian. Check out the legendary Sadat X as he does “Punks Jump Up to Get Beat Down.”
I’m not a videographer and there are some technical issues with the video for which I deeply apologize for; but the video should still give you a great sense of what transpired.
