Nice & Smooth + Pac Div - Funky For You ‘09

Posted 7 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
9th Wonder
Album:
Smirnoff Signature Mix Series

Earlier this month, we featured If I Ruled the World ‘09 a revamped version of Nas’ 1996 hit that marked the beginning of this year’s Smirnoff Signature Mix Series.  The newly-released second entry finds East Coast icons Greg Nice and Smooth B teaming up with a SoCal hipster-hop trio to craft an updated cut that’s as Nice & Smooth as a refreshing cocktail (complete with Smirnoff vodka, of course).  On Funky for You ‘09, the duo join forces with Like, Mibbs, and BeYoung of Pacific Divison to bring their 1990 classic into the modern day.  Since that throwback sound is one of today’s biggest trends, 9th Wonder doesn’t have to stray too far from the old-school—as the emcees lace their verses with references to their drinks of choice, the beatsmith delivers a chilled-out instrumental driven by orchestral samples, and Tyler Woods completes the mix with some soulful backing vocals. If you’re thirsty for more funky reimaginings of classic cuts, stay tuned for a Kardinal Offishall-featuring revamp of Buckshot‘s I Got Cha Opin.
