Listen to Killer Mike and Mr MFN eXquire remix UMO’s “So Good At Being In Trouble”

UMO

Whereas the original version of Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s II standout “So Good At Being In Trouble” was a laid-back slice of psych-rock meets soul, its remix takes on a decidedly darker, more aggressive approach. Featuring crazed electronics and fierce new lines by Killer Mike and Mr MFN eXquire, the Black Noi$e-produced rework — which Big Boi premiered this morning via Twitter — reads as a daunting, hyperactive piece of futuristic hip-hop. Here, the two emcees present a palpable sense of urgency as they brew up a different kind of “trouble”. Listen below.
