You can tell that a beat was produced by DJ Premier if it has these Primo qualities:

1. Just a straight boom bap, nothing else

2. Some sort of spooky sounding violins

3. 1-6 different keyboard keys with a slight reverb, spooky sounding

4. Some soul/gospel/jazz sounding sample

5. Lots of scratches and vocal sample mixes from other songs
