Remixes have always been a vital part of the music industry at large, but for hip-hop, there is a special appreciation for taking the familiar and putting a new spin to it. After a run of personally introspective and worldview expanding releases, I love the fact that Curbside Jones has thrown us all for a loop (pun intended) with a series of chop-heavy remixes on CurbFlips, his latest drop. Artists like Pusha T, Freddie Gibbs, Common, Yasiin Bey, Sean Price, MF DOOM, Playboi Carti and many more get the Curbside Jones filter applied to great effect. Definitely cop this one when payday comes around, and regardless of whether or not you own it, stream it and share it with everyone.

I’m getting extremely hype about releasing Day For Night, my latest EP in a long line of solo releases. The original idea was to be dialing down the musical output at this time to make room for other creative outlets, but inspiration cannot be denied once it makes its presence known. Bee Drowns In The Honey is the perfect example of this principle, as it was the cadence and verse-styling of Playboi Carti that inspired me to approach this beat with a different attitude and execution. I’m very happy with this particular song, and the project as a whole, so definitely make sure to share this one around, and keep your eyes and ears open for more information in regards to the release of the full project.
