LargeUp Premiere: Hear Electric Punanny + Chi Ching Ching Flip Nicki Minaj On “Hot Gyal”
The week’s hottest release isn’t the new Kanye West, that buzzy Jaden Smith joint, or even Raury‘s cinematic social commentary. It is, in fact, a brand new Nicki Minaj flip, handled by New York DJs Electric Punanny and premiered by the good heads at LargeUp earlier today. With the help of dancehall entertainer Chi Ching Ching, Puanny has gone and flipped Minaj’s “Trini Dem Girls,” seizing on its existing rude dancehall qualities and pumping it up a certified basement banger, which they’ve dubbed “Hot Gyal.” Allow LargeUp to explain:
The remix comes after Chi Ching Ching and Electric Punanny joined forces for an unplanned session at Webster Hall’s House Party weekly, during the deejay’s visit to New York last year. An affiliate of Popcaan’s Unruly Gang and a staple on Kingston’s dancehall scene, Ching is quickly gaining international renown for his distinctive voice and personality (check out his cameo in this documentary on the dancehall crew) thanks in large part to his infectious recent anthem, “Way Up!”
