Though he may be known as one of the best to ever touch a record, DJ Premier will be letting his band do (some of) the work on a forthcoming tour. Today the hip-hop legend has announced that he’ll be hitting the road with his live band, BADDER, for the first time since 2015.
The tour launches in British Columbia on May 31st and runs straight through the month of June. Back in 2015, Preemo shared a single with the band, comprising Lenny Reece on drums, Brady Watt on bass, Takuya Kuroda and Mark Williams on horns and keys.
