DJ Premier & Pete Rock stop by DD172 for a photoshoot and kick it with Dame. Curren$y then pleads with Premier for them to smoke together (lol), and Premo reminisces on catching Big rolling a joint at Baseline and Dame admits “Big Pimpin” was when he started smoking.

Dame also discusses hip hop right now (well, this was back in March) with Corey Smith from Blacksmith and gives the example of Curren$y, Wiz and tabi all working with each other, whereas that wasn’t the case back in the days:

“Even with us, like back in the day, the values like… Honestly Roc-A-Fella would be in the elevator with Wu-Tang and say what’s up and not say another word to each other”
