I’m not entirely sure when this Pete Rock remix of Clipse’s “Wamp Wamp” actually dropped, though I have read that it dates back to 2008. Either way, the folks at 2DopeBoyz liberated the track last night that appears on Pete Rock’s Japan-only remix CD, SP1200 Files Series Vol. 1. Background aside, this version of “Wamp Wamp” kind of proves why the original — and the rest of Hell Hath No Fury, for that matter — was so perfect just the way it was. The Thorntons brothers’ icy rhymes were taken to another level by the Neptunes’ minimalist, chilling production. Pete Rock is definitely one of my favorite producers and parts of this remix sound great, but it can’t compare to the album version.
