- Feat. Snoop Dogg, Juicy J, T-Pain
- Producer: Stargate
- Album: Rolling Papers
Considering everyone and their mother has done a freestyle over Wiz Khalifa’s breakthrough smash Black & Yellow – seriously, my mom f**king killed that beat – it’s only right that the main man himself has finally supplied the official remix…excuse me, G-Mix. Joining the Khalifa man over Stargate’s instantly recognizable beat (that’s right, two Swedish dudes created that banging and sparkling beat) are purple and yellow proponent Snoop Dogg, who contributes a minimal, relaxed verse, Three 6 co-founder Juicy J, who’s apparently “a bumblebee light up like a Christmas tree,” and the god of auto-tune T-Pain, who easily delivers the song’s most entertaining section, followed by Wiz closing out the festivities with a typically smoky, though remarkably swaggish, brand new verse. Even with such high profile additions I’m frankly not sure it’s better than the original, for me the G-Mix actually dilutes the simple and catchy appeal of Black & Yellow, but I’m sure that’s a point DJBooth Nation is debating as we speak in the comments below. So what are you waiting for? Get to listening. Just push (play) to start.
