Soulja Boy - 'Pretty Boy Swag' (BADBADNOTGOOD remix)
BADBADNOTGOOD have just unleashed their remix of Soulja Boy's 2010 summer jam, 'Pretty Boy Swag', and it's pretty special.
Only a remix of the highest order would justify dipping into the archives (so to speak) - but BADBADNOTGOOD have nailed it, proving they're not a one-trick pony at all (not that we ever felt that way).
The production is tight, the beats are huge, and the songs sounds fresh again. 10/10.
BadBadNotGood have shared their new track 'Hedron', a very cool offering lovingly crammed with a deep bass filling out the boppy structure and hi-hat inflicted beats. The beginning and end are quiet, fuelled only by a simple bass line and some tinkling effects as the jazzy tension builds. [read more]
Ok, so this isn't strictly a new beef, but a continuation of the Raider Klan vs. A$AP Mob beef that started back in June. Essentially Soulja Boy has sided with A$AP Rocky and his mob, which led to a pretty intense (and hilarious) twitter exchange with SpaceGhostPurrp. [read more]
We caught up with BADBADNOTGOOD before their rare London show at XOYO a couple of months ago to talk business, and with the release of the incredible BBNG2 last week (which was downloaded 22'000 in 24 hours), we thought it was about time we unleashed this monster interview. We talk about how they started, their relationship with Odd Future, bad marks at music school, the origin of their name, their influences and a million other things. [read more]
'Six Degrees' will be released on June 23rd via Lex Records on both digital and vinyl formats, and includes instrumental track 'Tone's Rap'. [read more]
