What, you thought that we weren’t going to hear from the Re-Up Gang while the Clipse promote their new album Till the Casket Drops? Think again, because The Raw is Back (Andrew Kelley Remix). Producer Andrew Kelley, making his first appearance on DJBooth today with a supremely raw leak from his new Cracksploitation mixtape, has brilliantly decided to remix some of Re-Up’s best work by combining their signature cocaine-centric flow with classic boom-bap beats, a mix that, as Raw is Back proves, can be a potentially deadly combination. Here Kelley has infused the track with a reggae-vibe, layering the track with some stuttering guitar and descending violin strings, plus recruited Styles P to bless the remix with a particularly fearsome verse (Styles has really been killing it lately). Still, since it’s a remix I have to ask: Is Re-Up’s sound better or worse off after Kelley’s touch? 2DopeBoyz Presents: Cracksploitation V.2: The ReMixtape, hosted by the Clipse, is due out January 28. Plan accordingly.
