Audio: Santigold "GO" featuring Karen O

Jay-Z (or at least his minions in the House of Jay) continue to prove us right and wrong by kind of killing it over at the new Life + Times blog. The latest nail in the coffin is the debut of this new Santigold banger “GO” — the first concrete evidence of her recent signing to RocNation. It features¬†Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (who btw also got a subliminal shout out from Chrisette Michelle on that Rick Ross song–how many inner city pre-teens singing that chorus know who Karen O is??) and a¬†storm my winter palace lyrical assault straight out the French Revolution, or at least Marie Antoinette. And it is a banger, maybe the best example of that punky “Brooklyn We Go Hard” spirit that had everybody all goosebumps about her solo persona in the first place. Just to put it even more in the OKP wheelhouse, the track is a collaboration between Q-Tip and Switch of Major Lazer fame, with Nick Zinner on guitar. Listen below and check a quick interview about the inspiration for the track at Life + Times (comes up when you click play)
