Mickey Factz is many things – ceaselessly creative emcee, clothing entrepreneur, DJBooth freestyle alum– but one thing he’s not is large. No wonder then that he brought in fellow NYC emcee Fat Joe and Mr. 5 Mics Bun B to serve as the offensive line for him to quarterback behind on the remix to his current street single Paradise. Possibly strained football analogies aside, since the original’s starkly electronic beat from Precize remains untouched the news here is entirely on the mic side of the equation, with Joey Crack continuing to flow in his grittier, Darkside-esque style (“got a chrome 45 for you sing-song ni**as”), Mickey re-upping his aggressively delivered flow (shots fired at Brian Pumper, what!?) and Bun coming in on the back end with a yet another trill offering (you do not want to get a haircut from the man). I think you all know what’s coming….wait for it….so which one’s better, the original or the remix? Either way, fans will want to cop Mickey’s boldly titled new mixtape, I’m Better Than You, available across the internets right now.
