24. The Lady of Rage “Some Shit” (1997)

Album: Necessary Roughness

Label: Death Row/Interscope

Producer: DJ Premier

Peter Rosenberg: “This song is ill not only because Lady of Rage is dope and was in a great zone at the time. This was a slept on album cut. I remember hearing that Preemo had done a couple of songs on the album, so I bought it. She’s dope on it, Preemo’s dope on it, and of course, it’s legendary because it has her [doing the famous DJ Premier drop], ‘Premier, DJ P-P-P-Premier.’ It comes from that. So there is a legendary piece of hip-hop history in that song, and then you have the fact that it’s Preemo and Rage. It’s kind of a forgotten about album cut.”
