“Gangsta” (Ad-Rock Remix)

    Tune-Yards’ “Gangsta” is being released as a 12-inch single featuring a couple of remixes of the track—including a version by Beastie Boy Ad-Rock. You can hear that interpretation below and it plays out pretty much as you’d expect, with a decidedly old school hip-hop flavor stirred into the mix. Sadly Ad-Rock doesn’t actually appear on the song, and you have to wonder if he was tempted to lay down a few verses of his own over the track. It wasn’t to be, but this version is still worth hearing, and the single release will also include a remix of the same song by Cut Chemist. Head over here to purchase a download of it now. [CoS]
