DJ Premier & Kendra Morris
Crate-digging bible Wax Poetics pimps its affiliated label artists and their influences with a monthly showcase. DJ Premier made history backing Guru in the sample-heavy Gang Starr, then by producing Jay-Z, Nas, the Notorious B.I.G., Jeru the Damaja, and more. Now hes leading his own label, Year Round Incorporated. WP signing Kendra Morris shares Premos love of soul, and her big voice can belt out her updated take on the genre with enough force to live up to its long history.
