“Clique” F. Jay-Z (Wick-it Rework)

    It was only on Thursday night when we were treated to the full-fleshed version of Kanye West, Jay-Z and Big Sean‘s Cruel Summer contribution, “Clique,” so it’s more than likely that the track will still be getting chewed up in your tapedeck. But in the (very minor) off-chance that Hit-Boy’s original bass kicks didn’t quite float your boat, allow Nashville, Tennessee boardman Wick-it the Instigator to man the ship.

    His rework wastes little time in laying the dubstep foundation, as screeching synths scream through at around 35-seconds in. Throughout the rest of the clip, Wick-it reinforces the backing drums and juices up the bass threefold during the quotable-friendly chorus. To crushing disappointment, Big Sean’s verse is excluded in this refix.
