Comment: It’s tracks like this that make me wish I was a producer. Even want to be a producer. Perhaps even make me blow a grand on an MPC-1000 before I finally realize that all my clever conceptual song ideas are thwarted by my lack of technological know-how, an absence of musicality, and my general laziness, particularly when it comes to learning new things that I’m not already good at. Fortunately for all of us, Nick Catchdubs is not as lazy as myself. Brilliantly slowing down and flipping Eric Clapton’s “Cocaine”, Nick Catchdubs remixes the Clipse’s Re-Up Anthem. Cocaine pluse Clipse equals….well, I’m not sure. Perhaps just more cocaine. But you get the point. Nick Catchdubs is clever and pretty handy with technology. And to be quite honest, this is probably the first time I’ve listened to Eric Clapton and not instantly turned the station or asked my college roommate to kindly turn down his stereo. I’m sure he’s a musical genius and all, but quite frankly I don’t care. I don’t like listening to his voice. Seems whiny to me. Plus I’ve never been a real “guitar guy”. To me this is the sign of a dope producer. If dude can take my least favorite artist and turn it into a joint that I want to just play on repeat, then that producer gets all of my love. And in terms of emcees, Pusha T and Malice make me happy. They rhyme over shit that nobody else would even mess with. And I always hear crap like, “Oh, but they only have one rhyme style and the subject matter is the same.” Yeah, well the rhyme style is “good” and the subject matter is “entertaining”. If it ain’t broke, then don’t fix it. And in case anyone is curious, this joint is from the “We Got the Remix EP”, which is basically a vinyl collection of the greatest hits off of DJ Benzi’s much sought after and buzzed about Clipse mix CD titled “We Got the Remix”. It’s not often a mix CD comes out anymore that garners such attention and even warrants a vinyl pressing of it’s hits. However, Benzi’s “We Got the Remix” is the truth.

Comment: This has a catchy little sample to it! I like it! It has a different sound to it.
