Yasiin Gaye

Y’all.  Okayplayer just dropped some heavy, heavy news.  I’m talmbout so heavy, it’ll make your head spin from the weight of it all.  Amerigo Gazaway, returns to reign majestically with an epic fusion from his new series “Soul Mates”–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’ soulful vocals over his new arrangements, the producer delivers a quality far closer to Gaye’s famous duets than that of a “mashup” album.

Yes, that’s the mighty Mos, now known as Yasiin Bey and the Soul Gawd Marvin Gaye.  As one.  Together.  The full project will drop on February 25th but you can listen to the track below and download it here.
