I was excited to share this as soon as I heard it, and of course anything produced by DJ Premier is usually gold. Making his debut on Hip-Hop Kings is Big Shug, who has teamed up with Fat Joe and MOP for his single “Hardbody”. Being credited as one of the founding members of Gangstarr Foundation didn’t do enough for Big Shug to take the limelight, but his upcoming album “I.M 4-eva” is his story wrapped into one album, which features newcomers Reks, Termanology and Slaine amongst others. Fans who buy the album will also have access to a 36-page book titled “The True Story of Gangstarr as Told by Big Shug” which will be available on 24th July 2012. In the meantime you can lisnen to Big Shug ft Fat Joe and MOP – Hardbody (prod DJ Premier) on the sound cloud player below.
