DJ Premier has worked with a slew of Hip-Hop’s most revered acts over the span of his 30+ years in the rap game.

One artist he didn’t get a chance to work with before he made it to the major leagues is 50 Cent, and it’s all because of Dr. Dre. During his most recent visit to The Breakfast Club on Monday, July 18, Preemo tells a couple of stories from his rise to fame from the moment he met the late Notorious B.I.G. to producing for him and JAY-Z at the beginning of his career. Later on, he reveals that he could’ve collaborated with 50 Cent before he blew up if it wasn’t for Dr. Dre.
