Statik Selektah & Green Lantern's "I Love Kanye" Remix May Be The Best One Yet

Well into the third week of The Life Of Pablo and the reworked Kanye odes are still rolling out. Actually, it seems like we’re getting a new treatment just about every other day now, with remixes from Stefan Ponce, DJ Premier and whoever keeps flipping that damn Seinfeld theme getting plenty of rotation near and far.

But when Statik Selektah and the mighty DJ Green Lantern step up to the plate, the world best take heed. With their contribution to the ever-expanding “I Love Kanye” pool, Stat and Lantern transform the self-adulation of Ye’s mid-album a cappella into a full-on nostalgic trip, with Stat’s soul-smothered remix occupying the first half of the cut and GL’s taking the back, where he fits the cut to a flip of Lenny Williams’ “Cause I Love You” a la the old Kanye’s “Overnight Celebrity.” But whether you love the old or new Kanye (or don’t love the man at all) these should certainly be satisfying midweek sonic retreat, especially for you heads.

Hear Statik Selektah & Green Lantern’s “I Love Kanye” remixes down below and hold tight for the arrival of another, which should be imminent.
