Back in March, the official, Busta Rhymes and Raekwon-featuring remix of Melanie Fiona‘s Give It to Me Right offered solid proof of something I’d long suspected: namely, that the Zombies’ Time of the Season would make absolutely phenomenal material for a rap record. For the few who remain unconvinced, I present Exhibit B: on Connecticut duo Mook N Fair‘s latest single (and first Booth feature), beatsmith J. Stone borrows that summery groove, as well as the cut’s “Who’s Your Daddy?” vocal hook. Flaunting their bankrolls in hopes of tempting a female away from her not-so-loaded man, the recent Cinematic Music Group signees parlay those timeless lines into a danceable yet refreshingly mellow take on the ‘high-rolling club banger’ formula. Newly-added for the record’s single version, DJ Webstar complements the chilled-out vibe with some… hoarse, Lil’ Jon-style hype? To be honest, it sounds a little out of place, but that’s a minor (and kind of funny) misstep on a damned catchy cut. Who’s Your Daddy is set for inclusion on the twosome’s forthcoming The Secret’s Out LP, the details of which are TBA.
