From DJ Clue? in the 90s to DJ Khaled in the 2000s, DJs have always built homes for dope emcees to live in, and it’s nice to see that nothing’s changed in the new decade. Now in 2011, we still have DJs serving up beats for the game’s hottest rappers to jump on, like the Evil Genius DJ Green Lantern’s remix of Clinton Sparks’ hit Favorite DJ. Green provides a more hip-hop take for the remix compared to the more electronic-influenced original, but both are serious jams that could do damage in both clubs in the hood and downtown. For the mic side of the equation Lantern enlists an all-star team representing different regions of the country; think about it like the McDonalds All Star basketball team, but for hip-hop. Diplomats alum and Harlem vet Jim Jones starts the record off strongly, followed by always dependable Houston legend Bun B and an unusually fast-flowing Game providing the clutch finishing verse. So Booth, it’s up to you now - will you be getting familiar to this remix at your local spot?
