DJ Premier Reveals How He Composed the Score for VH1’s The Breaks

The wait is over. The Breaks airs tonight!

VH1’s original movie The Breaks is about hip-hop’s golden era, so the movie’s score is key to telling the story. That’s why none other than DJ Premier put it all together.

“I’ve always wanted to score,” Premier tells us. He adds that he previously did some “minor scoring” for a documentary on Hook Mitchell, but for The Breaks, he was given more creative space with which to work. “I’m shaping the music to the actual scenario and that’s what I’ve always wanted to do,” he says.

Check out DJ Premier’s full interview in the clip below and catch The Breaks when it airs TONIGHT at 9 p.m. Will you be watching?
