Alicia Keys ft. Raekwon, CNN & Styles P - Empire State of Mind Pt. 2 (Remix)

Posted 6 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
DJ Green Lantern
Album:
Unreleased

Now that Alicia Keys has dropped her emotional new album The Element of Freedom I think we can expect half the rappers and DJs on the planet to jump on a track with her. Today DJ Green Lantern became one of the first to throw his hat into the remix ring with his Empire State of Mind Part 2 (Remix), which is in essence a remix of Alicia’s remix of her smash single with Jay, Empire State of Mind, although Green Lantern mixes in both versions (follow that?). Musical genealogy aside, the central point is that in addition to Lantern’s dope production skills the remix features several Big Apple rap stars, including Raekwon, Capone-n-Noreaga and Styles P. For my money Raekwon’s verse is easily the best, but I’m sure the Booth will set me straight if I’m off. For more from the lovely Ms. Keys, pick up a copy of Element of Freedom, available now, and of course keep it locked to DJBooth for more dope remixes of remixes.
