The recently-featured Wish You Would, a track off Ludacris’s forthcoming Theater of the Mind, is a sign that somewhere, somehow, someway, the ATL veteran is smarter than the game has given him credit for. After hooking up with the Salinas Brothers, a.k.a Play*N*Skillz, at this year’s New Mexico Takeover III, Cris has decided to drop a remixed version of the record. The Texan production duo freak out the bassline with heavy synth punches and light drums, under which Luda and T.I.’s vocals flow flawlessly. Although the redux doesn’t outdo the original, the shock value of two competitors/former nemeses coming together to do a track should be enough to push a few more units (and have new artists flocking towards Play*N*Skillz). Theatre of the Mind drops November 25.
