If you think Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan are baffling, think about how 49-year old DJ Premier feels.
But, as the super producer told Hip Hop Wired, he keeps an open mind when it comes to the former Rich Gang partners and any of the youngsters who might be bringing something different to the game.
"The youngsters that’s out now, I buy it all," he said. "Like Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan -- I study all that stuff. I don’t do that style, I don’t have to. They’re doing it. My younger nieces, nephews, and all them, they like that style. I study it because I want to make sure that I understand what they’re up to because they are part of our family. Know your hip hop on every era."Premier went on to say as much as he respects the youngins, he's not going to use their lingo like "turn up" or "lit."
And I'm going to still say fresh, hype, def, fly," he explained.
