As Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire’s DJ, I’ve probably heard Illest Niggaz Breathin’ 100 times, including performing it at shows and hearing it soundtrack random Passion debauchery sessions with my Gz. After months and months of holding the track hostage, eX decided to drop it as a Maxi-Single, enlisting myself, The MFK, and Obey City to remix the record. After thanking the based God through offerings of sage and sativa, I got to work.
The timeline for completion on this one was shorter than a disgruntled blogger’s attention span, but luckily I finished the track really quickly. I thought eX and Goldie Glo do so much vocally that I had a nice structure of where I wanted to take things. J5atron made an trunk rattler on the original, so I opted to go for my signature space bass vibe to offer something different. Consider it somewhat of a smoothed out wake and bake version.
This was the first hack I’ve done in Ableton Live’s new version 9. If you’d like to see a breakdown of the process, and get a look into Ableton let me know by replying, or reblogging and I’ll shoot some videos going over the session. Feel free to hit me on twitter too if it’s easier @DJSicksentZ
I wake up each mornin, feelin like that n_gga.
