Royce da 5’9″ and DJ Premier have proven to be a formidable one-two punch in the past, but they’ve taken their unique brand of magic to another level with the help of the NBA.
Nickel and Preemo’s “Rockin’ with the Best” is now the official intro to NBA Countdown, a huge honor for two of the underground’s shining stars. “The title describes us and it describes the competition that goes along with basketball. It’s the attitude that you need, so we wanted this track to carry that vision,” Premier said in an interview with ESPN. Royce followed up by saying “Being recognized for our talents and having the opportunity to work with ESPN and the NBA is next level. You forget the magnitude of your work until your father calls you and says he just heard you on ESPN; that’s when it really hits you!”
