Kolexxxion, is a collaborative studio album by renowned DJ/producer DJ Premier and rapper Bumpy Knuckles (a.k.a. Freddie Foxxx). Most of the beats on the album (all produced by DJ Premier except "Word Iz Bond") are beats that were rejected by other artists, such as "B.A.P. (Bumpy And Premier)" (This beat was intended for Jay-Z's 2009 album The Blueprint 3, but by the time DJ Premier had sent it to him, it was too late for the beat to make the cut for the album),[1] and "wEaRe aT WaR" (rejected by Immortal Technique)[2] and "EyEnEvErPuTmY4cUsAwAy" (Premier had himself stated, on Hot 97.5 that he had, on several occasions, sent the beat for rapper Kanye West, but it never made the cut for any of his projects).[3] Some of the songs are previously released collaborations between the two. There are only two guest stars on the album, which are Flavor Flav and Nas. The album was released on March 27.
