Just a brief post this morning to share a track and some Engrish.
I saw Nosaj Thing play at Logo a few years ago. Was one of the best shows I’ve seen in Shanghai, and maybe ever. Super late pass on this, but I just found his remix of “Forever” by Drake yesterday.
My friend described Drake like this: “Drake is not even a rapper. He’s a Disney character. Literally everything he does has been decided in a boardroom, based on up-to-the-minute market analysis.”
True, Drake did come up on the teen show Degrasi and I heard he doesn’t freestyle, just reads lyrics from his Blackberry. And one of his mixtape covers shows him sitting on a hotel bed alone, wearing sunglasses, looking at his Blackberry.
That’s all wack, but I’m feeling this remix and some of his other cuts. Expect more crossover tracks from him with UK producers like Jamie XX and SBTRKT this year. Sorry about the 128kbs on this track, it’s not an official remix.
