5. DJ PREMIER - "B-DAY MIX"
Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds made a very good point on their show the other day: we never pay tribute to those that are still alive. In honor of DJ Premier's 47th birthday, Rosenberg and Sounds put together this mix of DJ Premier's best work. The 1/2 of Gang Starr truly contributed more than most to Hip-Hop history. This mix definitely took us way back.
