Well I can’t believe it’s been five years since my most successful song blew up here in the B/CS. In honor of the occasion I decided to give the track a much needed overhaul. Back when I recorded the original I was using old software, a different beat making approach and I had a different delivery in my voice (which I can’t remember why I was doing that). With all that being the case, I’ve wanted to give the song a makeover for a while now. I have remixed the beat, re-recorded the vocals and remastered the track. Download the FREE mp3 on the Free Music Archive page here on the site, or buy it in any of the digital music stores (iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, etc.) if you want to help support the cost of making music. This song will also be on the upcoming “greatest hits” project I’m putting together.
I hope you enjoy this version even more than the original!
I’ve done a few of these remixes in the past. I can play guitar (basic strumming that is), so sometimes it’s fun to go the opposite direction with my favorite rap songs by making an acoustic/kinda-singing remix instead of rapping to it. I don’t pretend that this is high quality work, but I make it for the fun of making it and doing something different. Hope you get a kick out of it.
This track was a lot of fun. My brother stumbled into the Edwyn Collins song on a movie soundtrack or something, and he suggested I put a little something down on it. I worked it into a pretty slick beat and decided to put together a spontaneous video to go with it. Hope you enjoy this.
As you may or may not know, I’ve been a fan of Classic Rock and Oldies for much longer than I’ve been a fan of Rap. That should explain why you’ve heard me do so many songs with Classic Rock samples or references to them in the lyrics. Recently I was playing around with the idea of sampling The Rolling Stones – Gimme Shelter and the beat came together much easier than I expected. I was excited to put lyrics on this and I love the final product. See what you think about it!
Now this was a really cool project. I was emailed about an instrumental collaboration that had been done on YouTube by JFlo and David Wong. In the email I was told that my voice might be a good fit for this beat so of course I took the challenge to see if that was correct. I love the challenge of rapping to anything even slightly unconventional. This was a rap beat so it wasn’t as far off the beaten path as some of my past experiments, but the violin certainly set this apart. Anyway, I think in the end it turned out pretty solid. But you be the judge.
I know this song is old but I’ve wanted to do my own thing to it for years. A little while back I finally sat down and cranked out a verse. I was mostly proud that I made it through the whole thing in one cut though it took a few takes to make that happen. Check it out and download it for free!
