“Do Work” F. Don Trip (‘Hung’ Remix)

    Sometimes, it’s difficult to explain exactly why some songs come together. This is especially true in the world of remixes, where all the rules can be thrown out the window to create something new. The latest example of this comes via David Banner’s remix of “Do Work,” a track off his upcoming The Make Believe Album project.

    After releasing the original version eight days ago, the Mississippi rapper-producer must have taken in several episodes of HBO’s Hung. Or dude just really loves the Black Keys, because he’s lifted their track “I’ll Be Your Man,” aka Hung‘s opening theme, for the below remix of “Do Work.” It’s a successful adaptation of the blues rock duo’s music and another reason why we wish BlakRoc 2 didn’t get canceled. [RR]
