I grew up listening to Ghostface, to Nas, A.O.T.P., and any other lyrical hip-hop (and sometimes raw rap) artists I could get my hands on. However, there was but one group that reigned supreme in my eyes. The kind of music you consider a go to as you hop in the car, or hit the gym, or even have a few friends over. Their music is timeless, and they go by the name of A Tribe Called Quest.
Today's selection comes to you from Nubbz, a producer from the Netherlands who sticks to solely the hip-hop I started with. His take of Tribe's "1nce Again" pushes the envelope of what it really means to be "chillin'." Nubbz released a project called Till Sunset just over a year ago, compiling all of the hip-hop remixes he handled during 2013. Interested? Well you should be, because the track list sees edits by artists Danny Brown, Childish Gambino, Blu, Freddie Gibbs, and even CL Smooth.
Although Nubbz's edit of "1nce Again" didn't make that first tape, it sits by itself beautifully. Grab Till Sunset for free download now and cool down with the new single.
