Nobody does real talk like Reggie Ossé a.k.a. Combat Jack. The former rap industry attorney, media executive, author, and Internet radio talk-show personality now hosts The Combat Jack Show, where hip-hop's biggest names are put on the front line. The questions will be tough—and shots will be fired. Co-hosted by Dallas Penn, Premium Pete, and Just Blaze, The Combat Jack Show appears every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday on Complex TV.
In the second part of our three part interview with DJ Premier on The Combat Jack Show, the legendary producer came to the defense of fellow hip-hop luminary Mister Cee, who was recently embroiled in a damaging series of alleged lewd acts that exposed his sexual orientation. "Judge him on his greatness as a DJ," said Premier. "His slip up is his slip up, he got to wear that. I wouldn't want to be in his shoes, but on another level, I still commend him on whether you liked his response to everything that happened, he still got on that mic and spoke."
This talking point with Combat Jack segues into a conversation about watching porn, which Premo confesses was something that he would partake in from time to time in his younger years. "Those were the good old days. If you had VHS tapes, that was like collecting baseball cards and dope records." He cites Vanessa del Rio as his favorite actress, and states that he produced two records for '70s male adult film star, Joey Silvera. "For them, I'm not going to do the beats like what I would do for a dope artist," said Premier.
Co-host Just Blaze jumps in to reveal his production has been used in three separation occasions for adult films without permission, one of which was "Roc the Mic" from Philadelphia group State Property. "They re-chopped it, and put it in a porn about some girl that breaks into a house. The dude ends up saying, 'Aight, if you break into my crib, you got to pay the piper.' And then he pipes her."
