These days it’s not unusual to hear a rapper spit on an indie record, but some samples and remixes still take me by surprise.
The Whitest Boy Alive is somewhere around #382 on my list of bands I would expect to hear someone rap over. Having said that, pushing the genre envelope is a must for new artists trying to stand out, and that’s what ProbCause has done with “1517”. I’ve been a fan of his early work thus far so his decision to put a unique spin on a band and song I already enjoy makes me like him that much more. Have a spin below.
Prob’s mixtape Stir Fry is out now.
