Soundcloud messing with my shit…So i got free stuff for you.

So, every now and then, I get bored and amuse myself by remixing popular pop/rap songs. Often, the goal is to flip them on their ear and give people a different perspective on a song they , most likely, are completely tired of hearing. I gotta admit, I do generally like all the songs I remix though. You’re never too cool for a catchy pop song, breh.
Anyway, i got this email today from the good people at Soundcloud

As you can see…They got me (as is expected, legally) and threatened a 3 strike rule which would cancel my soundcloud. So, being the obedient pussy that I am, I preemptively deleted all the pop music remixes I’ve made to assure I don’t get the axe from soundcloud. While that’s a bummer for me (Soundcloud is an ideal place to post that kinda shit, outside the whole “It’s illegal” aspect) I figure I might as well throw them all in a folder and leave them here for any of you guys who might not have them.

As an added bonus, I remixed the Migos hit “Bad and Boujee” just now (literally just did it in the last half hour) cause, why not? It’s a curveball version , for sure. It’s in the folder below but, if you just want that song alone (or to just listen to is stream), here’s  a link to that:

Yay or Nay: Jidenna, The rapper

if you are even mildly aware of pop music this year, you’re probably familiar with Jidenna’s hit song “Classic man”. Taking the formula of Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” but making it engaging and not terrible, this joint was everywhere. Hell, I even remixed it for fun. But here’s something I bet you didn’t know (I sure as hell didn’t): Jidenna raps. He’s not the first r&b guy to surprise us with that skill set. Chris brown did it. Even your man young BIEBZ has been heard spitting #barz. Let’s be honest, anyone can rap. It’s not rocket science. But what sets apart the good from the bad is something totally different.
So, I happened upon this Jidenna song/video the other day and was honestly kinda surprised…he can rap. Like…seriously. He’s not bad at all. I’m curious what you guys think. I don’t love the production but it does have a mood to it and it allows Jidenna to go in more than I ever would have thought possible. Check it:

Well, what do you think? (you can pick more than one choice)

Peep this remix of Jidenna’s “Classic man”

jidenna I’m not gonna lie to you guys. I’ve been on the road a lot the last year or two and this had led to me being less prolific than I’d like to be. More than once, I’ve gone a month without even making a beat. So, every now and then, you gotta create to stay sharp. One way I like to do that is take a song I’m currently listening to a lot and try and remix it. This isn’t always possible as acapellas can be tricky to come by. I was lucky enough to be sent this DIY acapella (Shout out to Ryan for that) and the rest is history. In the case of this remix, we find a song that I’ve been strangely obsessed with. Funny thing is, it’s some random R&B song…which isn’t typically my flavor but, hey, music works in mysterious ways. If you’re not familiar with Jidenna or this song. He’s a new artist Janelle Monae is putting out. I could ramble on about him but I think it’s best you watch the video of the original version of “Classic man” to really get where he’s coming from. Me simply saying “Yo, his clothes are nutty!” wouldn’t really do it justice. Part of the fun with remixing tracks is taking the originals away from their intent. If you’re familiar with other remixes like this I’ve done (Regina Spektor, Fiona Apple or  Bobby Shmurda) , I generally take upbeat or hi energy songs and make them somewhat melancholy. That’s my thing….and this one is no different.  I should also point out, this was done for fun on my part and with no consent from the artist. I’m not selling it. I’m simply putting it up on soundcloud. So, I hope Jidenna doesn’t mind. My guess is, he’ll never even know it exists. Oh well. So, here it is. Enjoy! Side note, saying “I can pull the wool” is an amazing way to describe getting girls. Not sure if it’s something a classic man would say but I enjoy it.

Edit:

Here’s a download link cause the soundcloud downloads expired. Enjoy!
