What happens when three highly acclaimed rappers are paired with three of the hottest current producers in hip-hop? You get the Smirnoff Signature Mix Series; a modern day spin on three classic rap songs. Following the release of KRS-ONE and DJ Premier’s Criminal Minded ’08, rapper Common and producer Just Blaze have hooked up for an ’08 rendition of The Light (It’s Love). Originally released in ’00, off Common’s fourth studio album Like Water For Chocolate, The Light finds itself with new lyrics, new accompaniment (Marsha Ambrosius and Bilal), a new baseline and a completely live feel. On March 4, Smirnoff will release Midnight ’08, a collaborative effort between Q-Tip and Cool & Dre.
