Steinski – “Mitt Romney Vs. The Truth (Steinski’s Fair & Balanced Hiphop Remix)”
Thanks to his early-’80s sample-collage throwdowns, the producer and DJ Steinski is the rare guy who can claim pioneer status in both rap and experimental music. And Steinski is still patching together bits of stolen audio in ways that, more often than not, have a case to make. His latest effort is “Mitt Romney Vs. The Truth (Steinski’s Fair & Balanced Hiphop Remix),” a track that throws bits of Mitt Romeny’s voice over a nice succession of rap beats, including a bunch from Jay-Z songs. The track has fun painting Romney as a goofy, out-of-touch flip-flopper, and it’s more fun than angry. It will almost certainly change nobody’s political convictions, but it does work as an enjoyable tour through many of the reasons why it’s so fun to hate Mitt Romney.
Mitt! I’m going to miss that guy after he loses so badly. (Uh, knock wood.)
