DJ Premier released his first installment of Beats That Collected Dust in 2008. Over his decades in the music industry, Premier had cemented himself as a mainstay producer for some of hip-hop’s heaviest hitters, such as Jay-Z, Kanye West, Method Man and the Notorious B.I.G., to name just a few.
The mixtape – a collection of beats that Premier had created for other artists that were ultimately never used – instantly became a fan favorite.
Preemo returned with Beats That Collected Dust, Vol. 2 in 2011. And now, over a decade since that last release, he’s surprised listeners with Beats That Collected Dust, Vol. 3.
All tracks on the tape were produced exclusively by Premier and the DJ says each has its own unique backstory.
“I like unique releases and Beats That Collected Dust is so unique. I also love the process of titling a project,” Premier shared. “I’ve always been responsible for titling all the projects I produce, and Beats That Collected Dust is so fitting. The format is an original tool, just like talk beds, freestyles, writing verses, and just plain listening.”
