Amerigo Gazaway: Yasiin Gaye - The Return (Side Two) [Mixtape]


After creating a buzz from his first installment of Mos Def verses over some amazing Marvin Gaye sampled production, Nashville producer Amerigo returns with the second part. He states:

"I wanted to build this side from more of Marvin's original production work. He was doing a lot of what we do now, in terms of looping and pulling samples from other pre-recorded sessions decades before hip-hop made it common practice to do so. This also gave me the room to feature other artist [Chuck Berry, The Temptations, Talib, etc.] and re-present those classic Mos [Def] versus in a new context."
