  /  06.12.2020


DJ Premier has revealed that his mother has passed away this week at the age of 91. He broke the news on Instagram with a photo of himself holding his mother’s hand.

“My Angel Just Got Her Wings,” he captioned the post. “I’m So Glad I Made It Here To Say Goodbye…The Caretakers Love You So Much That They Just Did Your Nails and Feet Before Your Last Breath… That’s How A Queen Gets Handled… I LOVE YOU MOMMA… 91 YEARS OF LOVE… YOU DID THE DAMN THANG! DADDY IS WAITIN FOR YOU!”

Two years ago, Preemo was forced to cancel the remaining of his “PRhyme 2” tour dates due to his father being seriously ill.

“Throughout the duration of my career, I have taken great pride in the fact that I have perfect attendance and never missed a show or performance,” the legendary producer wrote on Instagram. “However, due to my father being extremely sick, we (Royce and I) had to make a very difficult decision to postpone the remaining ‘PRhyme 2’ tour dates.”

He continued, “While my fans are of the upmost importance to me, I always put family first and as much as they need me right now, I definitely need them.”

Shortly after canceling the tour, his father passed. He took to Instagram to share a photo of himself holding his father’s hand, similar to the one he shared with his mother. “A RARE BREED,” he wrote. “YOU WAITED FOR US AND YOU TOOK YOUR LAST BREATH PEACEFULLY IN YOUR OWN HOME THE WAY YOU WANTED… GLAD WE WERE HERE IN THE HOUSE TO SEE YOU GET YOUR WINGS… LOVE YOU DAD! R.I.P.”

The REVOLT team would like to send our thoughts and prayers to DJ Premier and his family at this difficult time. Rest in peace.
