Time for some confessions. “My Life” by Von Pea wasn’t really “a bone-chilling hip-hop bildungsroman” produced by 9th Wonder. It was Von dumbing out over “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It.” And DB49′s “Death & Resurrection” was actually a parody of “All of the Lights” about lite beers. April Fools. Admit it, we got you.
But this amazing day isn’t over yet. We’ve saved the best for last: an exclusive remix of Will Smith’s “Men In Black” by DJ Burn One. One day, when Burn One is mentioned in the same breath as Organized Noize and Pimp C, this track will become the stuff of hip-hop folklore, like Biggie’s Pepsi freestyle or the Lootpack’s Toyota commercial. And maybe, just maybe, people will remember that Metal Lungies had something to do with it.
Many thanks to Yumi Sakaki for the amazing art.
