Big Shug is back with DJ Premier on "Still Big"

Underground hip-hop veteran Big Shug has been in the game for a minute now and has been holding it with the Gangstarr Foundation and especially DJ Premier since the 90s. On his new hard-hitting single, "Still Big" he teams up again with Preemo who sets him up with signature head-nodding production and classic scratching. To make the cipher complete, Premo laces the hook with a Guru sample from Gang Starr’s classic, “Put Up or Shut Up.”

The track is taken from Shug’s upcoming album, The Diamond Report, which solidifies several things about the Boston rap stalwart. First, there’s his unrelenting passion for the craft even after multiple decades in the game, which he sums up eloquently when rapping, “Infinite torch, my flame’s eternal.” And then there’s his unquestionably keen ear for production, as he goes-in over the dope Premo instrumental. He also takes time to gives props to the late Guru on the track as well.
