Listen: Big Boi’s “GossipZilla” featuring Blue Öyster Cult

on February 03, 2014, 1:08pm

In the newest installment of Big Boi’s ongoing mashup series, his Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors single “Gossip” gets a classic rock makeover. Produced by Ray Murray, a.k.a. Dungeoneze, the 2012 hip-hop banger is spliced with Blue Öyster Cult‘s 1977 Spectres cut “Godzilla”.

Where the addition of Sade gave “CPU 2.0” gave the original track a smoother new look, “GossipZilla” is all tough and scruffy — the result of Big K.R.I.T. and UGK‘s hard-edged southern rap being paired up with Blue Öyster Cult’s heavily-distorted and stomping riffs. It’s an unlikely combination, but one that works extraordinarily well. Check it out below via its trippy accompanying visual.
