DJ Premier Discusses Scoring VH1’s ‘The Breaks’

DJ Premier
VH1 recently spoke with DJ Premier, who scored the network’s new original movie, The Breaks. The film, which is set in New York City during the summer of 1990, depicts three friends trying to make it in the hip-hop industry.
In the interview, Premier discusses the equipment he used to produce the music and what it was like working on the film. “I’m shaping the music to the actual scenario, and that’s what I’ve always wanted to do,” he said. “Scoring has been a dream for me.”
The Breaks premiered last Monday on VH1, but you can catch it again Friday, January 15 at 11 p.m. EST and January 22 at 1 a.m. EST.
