“Mo Money Mo Problems” was the catalyst for my longstanding love affair with hip-hop and while I’m protective of it, I’m not mad about this remix. TBMA, which is short for The Bolivian Marching Affair turn the classic rap tune into a moombah dance floor mover. I’m partial to the melody in the beginning but as a whole, the song successfully breathes new life into an old staple. The remix is available for free via TBMA’s Facebook page.
French duo Amine Edge really takes their “G House” — or Gangster House — reputation to heart on this mashup of Notorious BIG’s “Who Shot Ya” and Forrest’s “Masquerade.” What makes this particular track more interesting is that both of these individual tracks actually sample the super identifiable piano riff from the original 1971 “I’m Afraid the Masquerade is Over” by David Porter. We love hearing Biggie get a bit of a housey spin. Check out the full track after the break.
