When we made our wishlist for music in 2012, one wish was that indie acts outside of rap would make mixtapes. We’re sick of waiting all year only to get one album from our favorite indie acts. We’re used to our wishes being ignored, but to our surprise, things turned out differently this time. Jhameel answered.

Jhameel said to send over some beats we’d like to hear him on, and we did. He just sent over his first track, and obviously we have to leak it. This one’s over Jay-Z’s “Lost One” beat (produced by Dr. DreĀ andĀ Mark Batson), a song that often gets looked over, probably because it’s from Kingdom Come.

Check out Jhameel’s remake below, and stay tuned to see where this mixtape project goes.
