Pioneer on Pioneer.

Though he is known best for his contributions to punk music, the late Malcolm McLaren made his own significant imprint on hip-hop music and culture.  Click here for a quick primer on how he helped bring hip-hop to an international audience.

To celebrate said contributions in honor of McLaren’s passing last week at the age of 64, DJ Premier, a pioneer in his own right, has released a mix of material created and inspired by the impresario.

DJ Premier – Malcolm McLaren Tribute Mix

Alongside Pete Rock and Q-Tip, Primo is another of the hip-hop traditionalists who has been in the lab to lend a hand on Kanyeezy’s next project, tentatively titled Good Ass Job. If you believe Preem, don’t expect any Autotune or heartbreaks on this effort.

If Mr. Martin is on board, you can count me in as well.

Props: RR
