A while back, I made a list of some remixes I felt were worth checking out. The great thing about music is that remixes happen so often, I have plenty more where that came from. So here are 10 more remixes you should check out.
- Classic Man (Remix)- Jidenna (ft Kendrick Lamar)
If you were alive last year, you remember this song. It was everywhere and played all the time. It’s a good song that Kendrick Lamar makes even better with a couple fire verses.
- About The Money (Remix)- T.I. (ft Jeezy, Young Thug, Lil Wayne)
This song is that hot trap music from the ATL legend T.I. It isn’t the heavy bass trap music you are thinking of though. The beat is more sophisticated and laid back in a sense, but still very dope. I like this version better than the original.
- Don’t Wait (Remix)- Mapei (ft Chance The Rapper)
It is no secret that the writers of this site love Chance. However, I’m not sure if the other guys have heard this absolute gem. The original is a really chill song and Chance adds a verse that is straight poetic beauty. Definitely worth a listen and will be stuck in your head in no time.
- TKO (Black Friday Remix)- Justin Timberlake (ft J. Cole, A$AP Rocky, Pusha T)
Justin Timberlake is the man. I have made my affection for him no secret. But this song is more about the three rappers who take a re-worked TKO beat and rip it to pieces. All three artists deliver great verses with different flows to create one memorable remix.
- All Gold Everything (Remix)- Trinidad James (ft T.I., Jeezy, 2 Chainz)
Remember a few years ago when Trinidad James, for reasons I still do not understand, was hot? Since the original version of this song dropped, James has been on a steady decline to irrelevancy. It might be because it is infinitely better than the original but this remix is awesome. 2 Chainz verse makes me laugh.
- One Blood (Mega-Remix)- Game (ft 24 Artists)
Yes, this is a long song and many of you are not capable of keeping interest for 12 minutes but this is one of the most well known remixes in hip-hop history. It features 24 artists, including Nas, Lil Wayne, Fabolous, Jadakiss, and so the list goes. A ton of huge names on a huge remix makes for a worthwhile listen.
- She Don’t Put It Down Like You (Remix)- Joe Budden (ft Fabolous, Twista, Turk)
A fun song with a few great rappers and a hook from the impressive Turk makes this remix one you’ll enjoy. I remember this snuck onto a few pregame playlists of ours back in the day.
- Deuces (Remix)- Chris Brown (ft Drake, T.I., Kanye West, Fabolous, Rick Ross, Andre 3000)
Look at the artists featured on this remix. That is reason enough to press play. You will not be disappointed. Side note: Fab is getting a lot of features on this list. Not intentional, he’s just that good.
- Get By (Remix)- Talib Kweli (ft Jay-Z, Kanye West, Mos Def, Busta Rhymes)
You’ve probably heard the original before. But this remix over the Kanye produced beat is unreal. Jay, Ye, Talib, Busta Rhymes and Mos Def all come through and do their thing. You have to listen to this.
- Made You Look (Remix)- Nas (ft Jadakiss, Ludacris)
Three legends, one remix, it doesn’t get much better than this. Just listen to it because I don’t really have words to describe how great this is.
