Beats by Su-Primo
This track was produced by DJ Premier (hence “Primo”), one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all time
He is an — ahem — supremely gifted producer (hee hee!)
Also “primo” is “cousin” for Latinos, so Mos Def could be referring to him as family, or a close friend. In Spain, they sometimes refer to cousins or close friends as “su primo” or “supri” for short. Therefore, Mos creatively shows his relationship with DJ Premier.
