Last night, L.U.C. of Rebel Babel Ensemble, called in to Word is Bond Rap Radio to talk about the marching band tribute he did to celebrate DJ Premier’s birthday. It’s an absolutely amazing mash-up of songs he produced played by brass, woodwind, percussion instruments, and even a DJ. The video is incredible as well.

You can play this arrangement if you want as Rebel Babel provides sheet music on their website.

In addition to the interview, I spun two hours of great DJ Premier tunes and recapped a bit of the historic Instagram Live battle he had against RZA last week. We then close off the show with some brand new music.
