He's dope but not the best because he's only stuck to one style.

Do you guys know how you can tell when a track was made sometimes just based on the sound [not the mixing] of the beat?   Preme just stayed with his sound, which I like to call "Classic".   You know why Christina fit over Preme's shit?  Cuz she sounds classic, she woulda made it as an artist if she was born 50 years earlier.

DJ Premier is one of the best producers in Hip-Hop period. but lately his beats do sound outdated. The last crazy beat I remember from him was the one for Fat Joe, "that white."

Probably been debated on here a lot but I want to make it more interesting.  For me, the short answer would be that he's outdated.  He's never changed his sound, it's 2010 and his stuff sounds like it's 98.  Now that's my opinion, and some people also think that but they then say that he's overrated.  People think that Primo is overrated just because he's outdated.  Clearly he is outdated in the mainstream world, with producers like Timbaland, DJ Khaled, Kanye, Pharrell, Just Blaze, Lil John etc. (not saying that these guys are better, but I'm talking in terms of sound.)  If you compare the music that has come out during the last few years to Primo's last few years of making tracks, you can clearly hear a difference between them.  And when you hear them, it sounds like Primo's stuff is totally outdated since you just hear those similar sounding kicks and snares (he's got some different ones but now a days, they sound the same,) and he always uses those 70's samples.  Personally, Primo should change up his style a little bit so that he can attract a bigger audience.  But does having the same sound mean that you're overrated?  Absolutely not.  To me, that's just how great producers are remembered and revered for.  Like when you think of Dr. Dre you think of G-Funk and with Primo you think of his legendary chopping and scratching skills.  So what do you guys think, is Primo overrated or is he just outdated? 
Im gonna give all yall some knowledge..u can never lose with the(BOOM BAP)....respect to primo.

It seems he sticks to the same formula for his production to stay consistent. Maybe hes smart enough to not try too much stuff out of his comfort zone like Kanye or Timbaland.

Neither overrated or outdated.

He has earned his place as one of the greatest producers of all time in Hip-Hop, and because his particular sound is so synonomous with what underground hip-hop personifies, he will never sound outdated. Even his production from back in 1995 or even earlier sounds just as fresh now.

And he's still making great music today.

Nothing wrong with sticking to a formula. Its HIS SOUND. HE CREATED IT.

To continue to point made by Beatzz, if Timbaland and Kanye stuck to THEIR own sound they created rather than copying others and chasing hit singles for money, they wouldnt be the laughing stocks they are right now.
