Yesterday Hudson Mohawke's remix of his fan-favorite record, "Chimes," leaked on to the net thanks to a radio rip. Today Hudson is ready to unveil the CDQ and official version of the record's remix, which features an all-star line-up consisting of fellow G.O.O.D.
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.
Back in July, Hudson Mohawke shared a monstrous instrumental track called "Chimes" that failed to make a big splash in the hip-hop world at the time. Well, this should change that. Future, French Montana, Pusha T and Travi$ Scott have all contributed to a new remix of the track.
Pusha T has been noticeably absent from our lives. The G.O.O.D. Music and former Clipse MC is all about high-quality rhymes and production, so that tends to mean he puts out less (but in a less-is-more sort of way).
Terrence Thornton, better known as Pusha T, was one half of the group Clipse and enjoyed a ton of success in hip-hop in the early 2000s along with his brother Malice, who made up the other half of the duo.
When it was announced that New Zealand pop sensation Lorde would be putting together the soundtrack for the new film in the Hunger Games series, it looked like the selection could be something special.
Quan is a VA resident who's formerly collaborated with Nas, and today he makes his HNHH debut as a solo artist with "All On Him," a track for which he snagged a guest verse from Pusha T. Listen to the soulful jam below.
O.W.S. is a relatively new singer with no face (yet, we're sure he's got a face, just not one we've seen) who signed to Island Records and dropped his debut single "Waterline" with Pusha T via Jay Z's Life + Times blog today.
Never underestimate an instrumental from Mike WiLL Made It. After nearly every emcee in the game hopped on the "No Flex Zone" beat, the song's original artists Rae Sremmurd have finally dropped an official remix.
