Amerigo Gazaway Just Dropped His Full UGK x BB King Mash-Up Project 'The Trill Is Gone' For Free
Amerigo Gazaway has been teasing and tempting the world with his brilliantly proper UGK x BB King over the last few months. We’ve already been treated to a pair of marvelous mash-ups in the album’s title-track “The Trill Is Gone” and then again last week with “Make Love To My Car.” But today, good people, Gazaway has unleashed the full force of his latest endeavor to the masses, joining hip-hop’s roots and fruits in holy (and funky) matrimony. Here you’ll find stone-cold sonic suites that meld the incomparable howl of a late blues legend and his darling six-string Lucille with the southern-fried swagger of his greatest (and of course, trillest) disciples, as well as fans, new and old, reflecting on the greatness of the Port Arthur, Texas legends. You can his the link below to grab Amerigo Gazaway’s full and righteously free The Trill Is Gone project, but before you do, get yourself acquainted with a trio of new selections from the album, including the album’s “Shoutro,” which finds Talib Kweli, Hannibal Buress and BB King himself speaking on the origins of the trill.
