Portland’s Cool Nutz Taps In With Detroit’s Slum Village For “Best & Worst” Remix
uper prolific Portland MC Cool Nutz teams with Detroit’s own Slum Village on the “Best & Worst” (Remix) from his forthcoming N.P.Y. (Never Play Yaself) LP, due out February 23rd.
Also featuring longtime collaborator Bosko – most recently known for his work with Outkast’s Big Boi, the track produced by Portland-to-Oakland transplant and BROKEBOYSYNDROME architect TOPE. An ode to crew love punctuated by hard verses, “Best & Worst” is the fruit of Cool Nutz’s time spent out on the road touring with Slum Village for a good portion of 2015.
The end result is a lush remix that flashes back to the heyday of the sped up sample and stands as a true testament to the sonic influence of Slum founder and celebrated beat god J Dilla.
