Rest in Lo, your words are echoing through the music universe and altering the very nature of this music landscape that we call hip hop. Sean P forever! – G. Kuyateh
How The Remix Came About
I did this a year ago and lightly making touches over the months. It was supposed to drop with some video I shot at the Duck Down fundraiser for Sean P’s fam in Brooklyn. Shxt was dope, mad heads stopped through to show love.
I had some tech issues with the sound, which prevented me from releasing it, which also prevented me from dropping this properly. For some odd reason, there were elements that didn’t flow and I had to approach it completely differently.
That realization didn’t occur until a few days ago. It suddenly all made sense and once the mixing started to flow, other ideas to build evolved. I already had the sample and 75% of the track done. The last 25% of it was falling apart but it all worked out.
My production is across the board from Hip Hop to NYC House (or club as old heads would say). Also I fuxk with RnB, Soul and eclectic vibes.
I’m a man of the 90’s, grew up a Polo aka Lo head from Crown Heights and was deeply embedded in the preservation of hip hop and the dance culture.
The shift in New York’s sound is very disappointing being that we used to be respected for it, now muthafuxkers don’t even know what New York or Brooklyn Hip Hop sounds like.
With that, I decided to do my part and start my own movement with sound. Producing along the lines of sounds that I grew up with, that boom bap, jazzy hip hop, funky soulful shxt.
It’s what I do, regardless of whether or not you enjoy… the point is preservation because others covering our culture don’t pay it the proper respect and thats The Brooklyn Word…
Holla if you have budgets and an idea or if you need some artistic brand development. I’m well versed in many areas outside of production. bless up – Dj Gibril

Lastly, I put this joint on shxtcloud (soundcloud) as well, but they are assholes and dicking all of the dj’s that pay to use their service. So I’m transitioning from their service as much as possible. I’ll get more into that later…
