The legendary skronk-rap producer/MC El-P is enjoying a bit of a career resurgence lately, on the back of Company Flow’s reunion and his recent work with Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire. He’s also got a new album, Cancer For Cure, arriving next year. And now he’s remixed “Drones Over BKLYN,” the track he released for free as part of Adult Swim’s Singles Series earlier this year. For the remix, he’s chopped up a (legal!) sample of “Tom Sawyer,” the Camaro anthem from prog deities Rush, and the result is both dope as fuck and entirely in keeping with El’s aesthetic. More rappers should sample Rush!
El is selling “Rush Over BKLYN,” and proceeds are going to a fund for Mr. Dibbs, the veteran turntable-wrecker who is presently battling both liver disease and a truly absurd medical bill. Stream the track and use the Soundcloud “download” button to buy it below.
