So everyone’s favorite recently deported rap crew (not for political reasons, FYI) is back in town, and drumming up sorely needed Internet buzz with a remix contest for “Hahahaha JK,” perhaps their best song to date, or at least, thanks to the indomitable Boi-1da, their best beat. Excellent source material here, sonically and lyrically — here is your chance to set “Call me Dwight Shrute the way that I eat beats” to drum ‘n’ bass or witch house or whatever.
The victor will receive “a t-shirt, signed CD, bag of weed (half kidding) and a feature on the band’s website,” and I can more or less guarantee you they’re not kidding about the weed. You’ve got until January 18; this has been going on for a couple weeks now, but the few submissions so far leave something to be desired: namely, an idea a bit more involved than just dumping the track on top of Miles Davis’ “Basin Street Blues.” Do better. These nice boys deserve it, and their weed is undoubtedly fantastic.
