The Soul Rebels surface to deliver the Power = Power Mixtape – a project that finds the badass New Orleans brass band taking on popular hip-hop tracks – and some footage from a New Orleans studio session with Maybach Music Group label chief Rick Ross. The mixtape premiered by NOISEY features covers and reworks of tracks from Jay Z, Daft Punk, Drake, Kanye West, Bruno Mars and Nicki Minaj. Big Freedia also makes an appearance on a bounce & brass rework of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” Check the footage below to watch The Soul Rebels in-studio with Rick Ross.
