Earlier this year, DJ Premier, one of the greatest rap producers who has ever lived, teamed up with Miguel for “2 Lovin U,” an alternate version of a song that appeared on Miguel’s Wildheart LP. And now Premier has taken another trip outside his comfort zone, teaming with the Nashville electro-pop duo Cherub for “My Space Baby,” a cool fusion of two disparate aesthetics. As with “2 Lovin U,” it’s fascinating to hear Premier put his boom-bap production chops toward something other than stone-faced East Coast rap. In the video, Premier and Cupid perform in an auto graveyard while women smash old TVs. Check it out below.
“My Space Baby” is out now at iTunes.
