The Story behind Jeru & Dj Premier’s “Come Clean”


via the good folks at EGOTRIP

“It wasn’t really East versus West, it was fake versus real.” So says Jeru the Damaja about his rugged, no holds-barred “Come Clean” in this Complex TV presentation on the making of theDJ Premier-produced instant classic from 1993. The mini-doc gets into the Shelly Manne andOnyx samples used in the track and the reaction from the hip-hop world to the song’s provoke-someone-to-slap-somebody energy as we learn how the sounds of Chinese water torture turned into essential boom bap listening.”



Montreal-based DJ and the founder (2007) and 24 Hours of Vinyl (2011).
