So the day before yesterday Tim from The Golden Pony sent me a promo copy of this and I went nuts. Lets start with the fact the Forgot About Dre is one of my all time favorite songs. So much so that I sang in the Middle School and High School Talent Shows with my best friend. I know precisely every single part of the song—it means so much to me in ever stage of my life.
Anyway, enough about me. What's so special about this rendition? As I told Timothy in the email, it is such a departure from the original yet an excellent homage with much respect. They slowed down the vocals and chopped them up without losing the original integrity. There's funk and disco and a bass line with as much personality as the N.W.A.
Yesterday as I was cruising on my way from one meeting to another a mid-20's dude caught me fist pumping and singing this remix. I knew he could hear it because he threw me a gang sing—WORD.
