I don’t know about y’all, but listenin to Mos flow over Marvin Gaye samples is what dreams are made of, my dreams atleast, the album is expected to drop on 25th February which is the same day that Schoolboy Q’s highly anticipated album ‘Oxymoron’ is expected to drop aswell. t’s gonna be a great day for listenin’ to hip-hop.
Gazaway’s new *Soul Mates* series continues the theme of his previous work in creating collaborations that never were. On the series’ first installment, the producer unites Brooklyn rapper Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and soul legend Marvin Gaye for a dream collaboration aptly titled “Yasiin Gaye”. Building the album’s foundation from deconstructed samples of Gaye’s Motown classics, Gazaway re-orchestrates the instrumentation into new productions within a similar framework. Carefully weaving Bey’s dense raps and Gaye’s soulful vocals over his new arrangements, the producer delivers a quality far closer to Gaye’s famous duets than that of a “mashup” album.
