J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League & 8Bars turn the "I Love Kanye" acapella into a cinematic 3-minute banger.
The most remixed track on Kanye West's new album, The Life of Pablo, has been, unsurprisingly, the only one that came without a beat: "I Love Kanye," a quick acapella freestyle on which Ye comments on people's tendency to pit different "Kanyes" against each other. The remixes have mostly come from producers, from the the legendary DJ Premier to young Migos collaborator Murda Beatz. The latest comes from the renowned Florida production team J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League as well as 8 Bars, who co-produced Rick Ross' "Foreclosures."
The remix, titled "Old Kanye," does bring to mind an older Kanye -- Graduation era, perhaps, but it still sounds fresh and certainly does justice (no pun intended) to the Yeezy acapella. There's also an added hook, which is sung by the unknown artist Stige, who sounds like 808s Kanye.
"We wanted to take Kanye's verse and make it into a full-blown song," Rook of the League told Rob Markman.
