Travis Scott's Dad Taught DJ Premier How to Play Drums

“Jack and Travis taught me how to play drums and bass.”

By //Music

DJ Premier sat down with Rap Radar podcast hosts, Elliott Wilson and B. Dot for an exclusive interview. In the conversation, one of the things revealed was that he was taught to play the drums by Travis Scott‘s father. The Houston rapper’s grandmother taught the legendary DJ/producer English in school. There, he became close with Scott’s dad and uncle, Jack and Travis.

“[Jack's] mom was my English teacher and she’s one the flyest people in my neighborhood to this day, Mrs. Webster,” he says. “They were the first to have everything in our neighborhood, they were the first ones with a pool table, first ones with a VCR. I was like ‘damn they can record Soul Train and play them.’”

He explains how as teens, Jack and Travis taught Premo how to play the drum and bass. “As I got older, like a teenager, Jack and Travis was always playing drums and bass in the house, so they taught me how to play drums and bass,” he syas. “Travis taught me how to play, [who] is Travis Scott’s uncle, bass, and Jack taught me drums. That’s how I really got into it, that’s a lot that had something to do with my production style to this day.”
