The second single released from Gang Starr‘s first album in 16 years, the “Bad Name” remix features Method Man and Redman. Speaking with Rolling Stone, Premier shared that he was always planning on releasing remixes of tracks from One of the Best Yet once the album was out.

“My plan all along was to include and do special remixes after One of the Best Yet was released and I knew Red & Meth would be perfect for the remix of ‘Bad Name’ and they both really wanted to be a part of this remix for me and Guru,” the producer said. “I did a new arrangement and it’s so dope with Red & Meth putting their spin on it.”

“Meth is the perfect closer and Redman blacks out. He sounds so happy and it comes thru the speakers,” Premier added.

He also revealed that there are plans to release more music videos for some of the album’s tracks, saying:

“There will be more videos released for One of the Best Yet, but I want to keep the music side fresh. We’re discussing a bunch of different options, perhaps releasing some new tracks, or a B-side like ‘The ? Remainz.’ There is still music.”
