Never saw Bob Marley as a trap artist per se? Black Chiney producer Supa Dups might just have the musical chops to F up your whole paradigm. The evil genius behind hits for everybody from Melanie Fiona to Eminem gives Marley’s classic anthem “Exodus” the Miami bass treatment on his latest instrumental “Jah Movement.” LargeUp has the story below, but mixtape MCs proceed directly to the link at bottom to commence writing.
Ever wondered what Bob Marley would sound like over some 808s? Ever wanted to suddenly shift your DJ set from reggae to Gucci Mane, without sounding like an ass? Black Chiney producer Supa Dups, a guy who’s done his best work voicing R&B singers on one-drop riddims and blending dancehall hits with hip-hop instrumentals, has got you covered then. Dups’ “Jah Movement” is a sorta refix of Bob Marley’s “Exodus” that sounds like it should be freestyled over on a Trap-A-Holics mixtape, and it bangs. It’s just an instrumental at the moment but, if I’m an A&R with enough cash to clear a Marley sample, I’m figuring out how to scoop this beat up before some mixtape MC makes it his own, seen? – Jesse Serwer
