Last week, Big Boi wowed listeners in the Booth and beyond with CPU 2.0, a new version of the Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors inclusion featuring a fresh instrumental and some silken vocals by Sade. Inviting Miss Adu to do her thing over a smoothed-out beat like the one Dungeoneze concocted for that remix was pretty much a no-brainer. By contrast, the newly-released GossipZilla is a little more off-the-wall. While Big Boi’s verses are retained from the reader-acclaimed original, as are Big K.R.I.T. and UGK‘s guest rhymes, the production has undergone a radical makeover. In place of Organized Noize‘s minimal backdrop, DJ Dark Fader crafts a crunchy, metal-infused groove, borrowing his beat’s stomping percussion and distorted guitar riffs from the Blue Oyster Cult‘s 1977 classic, Godzilla. How does this adventurous mash-up compare to its prototype? That, my friends, is for you to decide. GossipZilla is the third of nine Big Boi remixes slated to drop in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for further highlights in the ongoing series.
