MIGHTY is proud to present the return of DJ Premier vs. Pete Rock: The Battle, on Friday, September 7th, at 9PM. The two will scrimmage head-to-head in a classic DJ battle with two adjacent DJ setups. Bay area staple and world-renowned DJ Apollo will be holding down the opening slot with Fran Boogie hosting the event. Advance tickets are on sale now at eventbrite.com/thebattle.
Perhaps Hip Hop’s most respected producers, the New York based DJ Premier and Pete Rock have been releasing classic material for 20+ years. Premier’s Gangstarr releases, with partner Guru, were instrumental to the culture, not to mention his collaborations with Jay-Z, Notorious BIG, Nas, Rakim, Big L and KRS-ONE to name just a few. Pete Rock’s release with partner CL Smooth, Mecca and The Soul brother, is critically acclaimed and birthed classic tracks such as “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)” and “Straighten it out”. Pete Rock has collaborated with a slew of Hip Hop’s elite including Nas, Slum Village, A Tribe Called Quest, Slick Rick, Talib Kweli and Run DMC, and the list goes on and on.
