Premier tells how the relationship between the generational producers first started. “It’s so crazy… He tweeted something about me and I hit him up, started following him and DM’d him,” the DJ explains. “He was like, “Yo man, what did you do to make “What Are You Here For?” on the Moment Of Truth album. I wish I could figure out the elements you used.”

Shocked by the depth of Harris’ musical knowledge, Premier reveals, “That wasn’t even a single! It’s an album cut, and he’s wanting me to dissect how I put that together? So we ended up being really cool with each other.”

Both producers are riding the success of respective recent releases, and it appears a collaboration could be in their future. “We talked about it. We talked about doing a project together, obviously it hasn’t materialized. But we talked about possibly doing something down the line.”
