Phat Gary describes Christina Aguilera & DJ Premier making “Ain’t No Other Man” | Interview
Christina Aguilera’s 2006 album, Back To Basics, featured an unlikely Hip Hop producer for the lead single. It was none other than legendary Gang Starr member DJ Premier, hailed as one of the top producers of our generation. Former DJ Premier manager Phat Gary explains in this interview how the connection was made and how the collaboration went down. Premier is a purist, so he has to fully respect the artist he’s working with and their craft. Gary explains that Aguilera’s significant other was a huge Premier fan and gave her the nudge to work together. The lead single “Ain’t No Other Man” was certified platinum and Premier produced/co-produced about five tracks on the album.
