The highly anticipated Instagram Live battle between DJ Premier and RZA went down on Saturday (April 11). As expected, the event drew thousands of people. By the two-minute mark, over 90,000 people had joined and the number continued to climb until RZA finally appeared about 12 minutes after the stream kicked off.

With approximately 170,000 people watching, the Wu-Tang Clan luminary struggled with some technical difficulties. To kill time, Preemo continued to shout out people as they joined. Drake, Eric B., Killer Mike, DJ Numark, Cut Chemist, Shaquille O’Neal, Black Thought, Questlove and Alchemist were just a sliver of artists who tuned in.

Nas, De La Soul’s Pos, Joe Budden, Stretch Armstrong, Zane Lowe, Yo! MTV Raps icon Ed Lover, DJ Rhettmatic, Just Blaze, DJ Jazzy Jeff were also on deck to watch the historic IG Live event go down.
