Smirnoff unites hip hop greats

KRSOne and DJ Premier

The Smifnoff Signature Mix Series has brought together three emcee/producer duos, to remix a classic from each emcees catalogue.

KRSOne and DJ Premier “Criminal Minded 08”
Common and Just Blaze “The Light 08”
Q-Tip and Cool & Dre “Midnight 08”

One could ask have Cool & Dre earned their stripes to be included in this 6-pack of hip hop  greats, but hey, let’s see what they come up with first.  They’re definitely no strangers to latching on to corporate projects of this sort.

Personally I would have rather seen someone like Alchemist, NO I.D., Madlib, or even Kanye (budget issue I’m sure) tear shit up with Tip, but I guess there’s always next time – ya hear me Smirnoff???

Smirnoff has concocted a mix drink to accompany each new mix, but you can visit their website for all that (only 19+ kiddies).

Listen to the KRSOne & DJ Premier collaboration below, and look for the Common and Q-Tip mixes to be released over the next 2 weeks.
