DJ Premier is first ballot hip-hop Hall of Fame, no debate. But throughout his career, he’s never been afraid to step outside of the box (see: Limp Bizkit, Christina Aguilera, Miguel). Over the last year or so, Premo has been working closely with rising Los Angeles singer Torii Wolf, whose music he calls “weird and wicked.” That’s definitely an accurate description of her new single “Free,” which features a guest verse from Macklemore. Premo doesn’t handle production duties on this one (King Of Chill cooked up that gritty beat), but he does lend his sampling and scratching talents towards the end of the song, similar to the role he played on Kanye’s “Everything I Am.”

“Free” is taken from Torii Wolf’s debut album Flow Riiot, out September 29
