When a legendary emcee gets together with a legendary producer, the result is usually a letdown because expectations are impossibly high. However, there’s absolutely no letdown in the works when Bun B teams up with DJ Premier for Let Em Know, a track off of his forthcoming album Trill O.G. Bun begins the festivities with a R.I.P. shout-out to the late and great Guru and then Primo jumps in, dropping one of those old school Gang Starr beats that remind you of the early ‘90s. From there both hip-hop vets showcase why they are still legends in the game: Premier flips a sample of Pimp C’s voice to compliment the sharp percussion, and Bun goes hard on the beat, spitting a mixture of lyricism and aggression that offers proof of why he’s one of the elite emcees in the game. Add in some classic Primo scratching and you’d be hard pressed to call this song a failure on any level. But I’m just one man, what’s your verdict Booth readers? Does Let Em Know have you hyped for Trill O.G.’s August 3, release date?
