Statik Selektah and Green Lantern – I Hate (the New) Kanye

Okay, so everyone’s a little sick of hearing about Kanye West at this point. Between the Twitter tantrums, album delay, TIDAL-only release, and declaration about another album this summer, it’s hard to deny that Ye is pushing it. The spotlight has been shining on the Chi-town superstar for a tad too long.

Regardless of the general consensus on Kanye’s recent behavior, artists are still finding inspiration in ‘The Life of Pablo.’ Statik Selektah and Green Lantern have remixed West’s a cappella track, “I Love Kanye,” into a melodic tune that adds some New York flavor to the original. Their playful mix gives additional meaning to the beat-less track: it speeds up Kanye’s lyrics about Kanye, slows them down, gives them some bounce, makes them darker, and even chops ’em. Statik Selektah and Green Lantern, essentially, redefine one of the weaker songs on ‘TLOP’ with their top-notch mixing.

Will Kanye react? Hop on his Twitter to see.
