If you haven’t read our interview with Big Boi (which you should), you can tell that the Atlanta MC is on something of a creative high following the debut of his long-awaited debut solo album. Heck, he’s even got two more solo efforts in the works. And while this writer in particular didn’t vibe with that album as much as others, there’s no denying the appeal of the track “Tangerine” (especially since it already featured T.I.). Now, thanks to said creative high, Big Boi doles out a remix of an already powerfully catchy little number now featuring Bun B, Rick Ross, and Khujo Goodie (via Rap Radar).
What was formerly a “dusty, rhythmic, and slow burning recreation of an Idlewild outtake” now takes on a vaguely psychedelic vibe thanks to a slow, almost menacing shift in pitch and volume, turning the track into something fitting for a Prohibition-era strip club. The addition of Ross and Bun B’s verse in particular help move the track into a darker direction and add new life to a fairly vibrant ditty. The American dream isn’t dead; it’s alive and kicking in the club down the road.
