Summary: B.B. King meets UGK.
About Artist: Amerigo Gazaway is one of my favorite mashup artists. He’s been on gregsiphop.com before for his mashups of Mos Def and Marvin Gaye. Amerigo Gazaway really bring the concept of the mashup to the next level.
About Song: This song is a bonus track off of Amerigo’s “B.B. & The Underground Kingz – The Trill Is Gone” (2015). Which I highly highly highly recommend if you like this track. This song is a mashup of blues guitarist B.B. King with Texas rap legend duo UGK.
Favorite Part: I love this whole project, the concept of B.B. with UGK just works and Amerigo does an awesome job. This track sums up the whole album really well.

Summary: Taking mash-ups to a whole new level.
About Artist: Amerigo Gazaway is my number 1 favorite artist right now. He is a remix artist who blends classic tracks into entirely new creations. He is my favorite example of how remixes can be so transformative, and not just a “rip off” of the original material.
About Song: This song is off of a project called Yasiin Gaye: The Departure (Side One), which has launched Amerigo Gazaway’s career to a whole new level. This free project is part of a series called Soul Mates where Amerigo takes two artist and blends their songs together into a whole new album. In this case Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) collides with soul legend Marvin Gaye.

The vocals on this song are from Kanye West’s first album College Dropout (2004), on a track called Two Words (ft. Mos Def).

Favorite Part:
Having listened to the original Two Words version so many times, so many years ago, I love you this song breaths new life into the lyrics.

Summary:  Smooth and Jazzy
About Artist: Xiomara is Berkeley singer sonwriter who has yet to catch her break but I really like what she does. Amerigo Gazaway is one of my favorite producers right now. He specializes in remake, mashups, redits, reworks, he is one of my all time favorite remix artists.
About Song: This song is a cover of a Tribe Called Quest’s “Electric Relaxtion”, with some other lyrics from Tribe’s “Find A Way”, and a little musical bit from No Diggity (which I guess was originally Bill Withers).
Favorite Part: This song is almost a little tooo laid back for my tastes but like how smooth she is on it, and it’s a creative reimagination of the two original Tribe Calle Quest songs.
Also, not gonna lie, I like the don’t mess with bill part at the end ;)

Summary: A Masterful Mix
About Artist: This mix is only one track off of a tape by Amerigo Gazaway called “Yasiin Gaye: The Departure”. Amerigo is a producer who who has done some truly awesome projects, one which is a Tribe Called Quest vs Pharcyde album and one that is full of Fela Kuti remixes. This Yasiin Gaye project has been taken down by the RIAA which is complete fucking bullshit.
About Song: This was a single from the project but you should definitely check out the rest of the album. Oh wait, you won’t be able to download the free album because the RIAA sent a cease and desist letter and threatened to sue.

These are the samples that I’ve found in this track so far…

Marvin Gaye – I Heard It Through The Grapevine
DJ Honda – Travellin’ Man (Remix)
Yasiin Bey – I’m Leaving Lyrics
Marvin Gaye – You Can Leave, But It’s Going To Cost You
Favorite Part:
The whole mix just flows so well.
