If you don’t know about Roots Canada then let me just say this, over the past four decades they’ve been the epitome of quality and integrity. So much so they made those their by-words. Based out of Toronto, Canada the company embodies the spirit of Canada in their leather goods and active wear. Since 1973 they have been crafting their brand, and like fine wine they continue to get better and better, when that seems impossible. Their XL line releases a collection of fleece, once again if you aren’t familiar with Canadian fleece, then please do some research, start with CYC and then continue from there. It wears better than any other fleece you’ll find. It’s simple yet effective. Like the other Roots product less is more and more is better, check the pics out below and click here to spend some money.
Producer !llmind continues his remix tirade, pairing Biggie and Jay-Z perfectly over some extra funky Boom Trap music. Taking elements from Notorious’ “Sky’s The Limit” and Jay’s “Success” and creating a new song, most importantly he creates the same chemistry the duo shared on tracks together. You can see the two Brooklyn born emcees trading verses on stage over the beat, he mixes in Sheek Looch vocals on the hook to complete the track. It works very well . If you aren’t familiar with !llmind by now, get familiar.
This version was slightly different from the radio version notably the Godzilla sound effect and the infamous guitar sample from David Bowie’s “Fame”. They couldn’t clear the sample so it did not appear on the record version of the song. Mix-A-Lot also references the gatorback tires instead of the 50 series he mentions in the radio version. Also, Nasty Nes’s presence is felt heavily on the record. Listen for the crew to talk about it at the end, Nes wouldn’t let anyone get on the hook cause he was cutting it up. His cuts were clean too, nobody ever talks about that. I’ll say it though, Nasty Nes was murder on the tables.
