Judging by Booth feedback on the Cash Money head honcho’s past features, many are of the opinion that Birdman‘s records succeed in spite of, not because of the headliner’s contributions. Here to put that hypothesis to the test are Alexei Jendayi and Kowboy Kom of D.C. duo Fly Gypsy, bringing us the world premiere of the first leak off their forthcoming ‘remixtape’ – a Birdman-less version of Pricele$$ track I Want It All. Over Alexei’s tweaked take on Kevin Rudolf and Arrowstar‘s synth-scorching beat (fortified with a sample from Rob Base & DJ E Z Rock’s It Takes Two,) Kom delivers hard-partying opening and closing bars, boasting “I get stupid, I mean outrageous/ I can make the flu sick, we mix contagious.” Complete with Weezy F. Baby‘s off-the-wall middle verse, this revamp’s got all the makings of a smash, but I’ll let readers have the final say on how it stacks up against the original. Set to drop in March at this year’s SXSW festival, Fly Gypsy’s FG*XL:remixtape will feature flipped versions of tracks by Wale, Snoop, Radiohead and more. Stay tuned for more leaks in the weeks ahead!
