DJ Premier And Royce Da 5’9 Bring Hip-Hop Flavor to ESPN’s ‘NBA Countdown’


For a second time, DJ Premier was asked to remix the music from ESPN’s pregame show NBA Countdown. The staff music director Kevin Wilson and Countdown production team members Amina Hussein, Lisa James, Terrell Bouza, Alvin Anol, Brandon Lowe and Tyrone Frison went NY’s finest for some help.

The Royce Da 5’9 assisted track will debut on tonight’s edition of NBA Countdown (7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN).

ESPN: What is it about working with NBA Countdown that prompted you to collaborate again?
Premo: I’m such a fan of sports and ESPN is the “go to” channel, as soon as I wake up every single morning, in order to get the happenings of the day. It’s a blessing to even have the opportunity to get involved musically with NBA Countdown.
