The O.D.: A Mixtape Daily Exclusive
Snoop Dogg sent out a warning on his Twitter page earlier this week to look out for the “Kings G-Mix” of his hit “I Wanna Rock.” Shortly after, the track featuring him and Jay-Z was igniting the Net.
“I wanna rock right now,” Jay raps. “The name is Hov, and I came to shake the town/ Yeah, your boy’s internationally known, but I’m from the ‘hood/ Got a pocketful of stones.”
From there, Jigga drops an assortment of rappers’ names, such as Big Daddy Kane, Notorious B.I.G., Doug E. Fresh and Rob Bass, as he talks about his rise from street drug czar to greatest MC ever.
Fellow New York hip-hop heavyweight DJ Green Lantern said that’s not the only “I Wanna Rock” remix you’ll hear. The Evil Genius has an official reworking on deck, which is going to give the record a Down Bottom feel.
“I’m working on a remix for Snoop, ‘I Wanna Rock,’ ” Green told us a couple of days ago. “Trust me: When you hear it … it’s got a Southern feel to it. It’s got a bounce to it. Right now, I got Yo Gotti, the cat Roscoe Dash, who’s got the ‘All the Way Turnt Up.’ I’m waiting on a couple more verses. Snoop’s got it. I’m working with it right now. It’s a crazy flip of that.”
Green is also quick to point out that he loves what Scoop DeVille did with the original record: “I think that’s a crazy beat.”
On Tuesday, get ready for an in-depth preview of the Evil Genius’ next huge mixtape — the much-anticipated Green Ghost Project with Styles P — right here in Mixtape Daily. The mixtape will be released February 2 with production by Green, Statik Selektah, Vinny Idol, Buckwild, the Alchemist, Dame Grease and Poobs. Guests include Jadakiss and Raekwon.
