New tunes from Carolinian mic wrecker Rapsody can be few and far between these days following the release of her unanimously-adored Beauty & The Beast EP. However, today is such a day where the femme fatale proves just how prolific she can be, dropping a remix of her Young Guru-produced standout “Don’t Need It” for the thirsty hip-hop lovers of the world. The sly rework taps young Brooklyn stunner Joey Bada$$ for the outing, fitting his vintage flow to a cut that perfectly captures the hard-knock sonic sentiments of Golden Era past, but with a refreshing, renegading edge that’ll surely have your head bopping and your neck sore by the time the track runs out. The original sits as a fine standout from her latest record, but a heavy-hitting update never did anyone no harm. So go and celebrate the maverick in you. Stream the freshly-released remix of Rapsody & Merna’s “Don’t Need It” featuring the never restless Joey Bada$$ below and grab your copy of Beauty & The Beast on iTunes today. And that certainly won’t be that last we hear from one of NC’s finest MCs, so stay tuned for the imminent dopeness.
