World Premier Side A

El-P: “Bobbito put out a group by the name of Mhz, which consisted of Camu Tao and Copywrite. And Camu Tao was a very good friend of mine who passed away a couple of years ago. Their first song was on Fondle ‘Em Records. It was produced by Camu. It was a song called “World Premier.” This was the song that deservedly got them a lot of love in the underground scene, and in the Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito scene. And that kinda made me become friends with Camu – just through me being a fan, and me just being like, who are these dudes? And just meeting them through Bob, or whatever.

“On “World Premier” they sampled the Rolling Stones’ “Monkey Man.” And I remember that because Camu told me the story. He was literally at a store and the shit came on, and was like what the hell is this? [Someone] told him and he ran to the used record store to try to find it, bought the Rolling Stones record, ran home that night and looped it up and they rocked over it. And to me that’s just such a pure and recognizable story. I’ve experienced that so many times. Where you’re just like, what the fuck is this? And then you have to run and go find it. This was before frankly the Internet was the place where you could find records. The context just wasn’t there. I mean, youtube didn’t even exist. (If you can believe that!) So if you heard something you had to go to a record store and find it. But it was just such a dope find. And also one of those joints where I was like, you know, I have that record and I never did [anything like that with it]. So you just kinda gotta like give it up.”
