Remix Fix: G E N I U S Hip-Hop Remix of 90s House Hit "Gypsy Woman" Nov 11, 2014 at 04:19pm 1,302 Views
"Gypsy Woman" was originally a house hit written by Crystal Waters and released in 1991. The Phili native's 90s hit (which was originally written for another artist) peaked at number 8 on Billboard Hot 100 shortly after Waters' record label decided she should keep the song for herself.
Trappin’ ain’t dead, but its king is still a subject to debate. Founded at the turn of the 21st century, ATL’s lyrical dope game has been led by the likes of Young Jeezy, T.I., and Shawty Lo. However, the authority of these monarchs is now questionable.
Last week we saw PARTYNEXTDOOR make a relatively strong debut on the Billboard 200, however he has not maintained his ranking this week, having fallen below Billboard's top 100. We've got one new entry this week, coming from the underground crew signed to Tech N9ne's Strange Music, Ces Cru. They were able to sell just over 6k, making a debut at #40.
This week on the charts proves to be rather uneventful, as there are no new entries to speak of, although G-Eazy was able to re-enter with These Things Happen. Cadillactica, on the other hand, experienced a steep drop from its top 5 debut.
Tristin Perry is so new that we don't know who he is, if he's a he, or where he's based (so please hit us up Tristin)! But, his remix of Sage The Gemini's, "Gas Pedal," is off the hook.At ten days old, this remix boasts live drum sounds, funk bass, and and an old-school vibe that fades into newer synth sounds in the second hook. There's also a dope groove and keys solo at the end.

HNHH: You were the first rapper to win a Grammy for a gospel album - What was the first thing that ran through your mind when you found out?
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".
Red October continues to haunt us, this time The Game go into the action with a sizzling hot pair of "Red October" Air Jordan 11s. The pair, complete with a snakeskin for patent leather swap, also features the iconic gold tip laces found on the Yeezy II. Black inner lining and branding at the 3rd lace slot serve as the only contrast from these bloody onslaught.
There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of anything Drake ever drops). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
