Master-of-beats Waajeed just posted his original, unreleased version of “Everything’s OK” for Blu and Miss Jack Davey (of J*DaVeY) –a refix of a the Flying Lotus production that we’ve been waiting for since that first dropped. Seems Jeedo’s differs quite a bit from the version that ended up on the no york e mo work remix LP, which was re-remixed by Blu himself. The full story in Jeedo’s own words:
Kenny Fresh and I were going to release this mix on our Waajeed x FreshSelects project last year. The homie Blu asked me to remix the original version produced by Flying Lotus. After I finished this ruff mix, he asked for a two track of the instrumental to relay his vocal. He agreed to send it back so I could finish it…… It never showed up. To quote Jay-Z, “What the fuck you done to that?” — I gotta admit, those were the first words that came to my head when I heard what Blu (one of my favorite emcees) did to my remix. Well, It’s sorta like a remix of a remix. Check his version, here. I felt you should hear my original version and judge for yourself.-Jeedo
Listen below and New Yorkers (not to be confused with no yorkers) catch both halves of J*DaVeY tonight at Le Poisson Rouge.
