DJ Class f/ Jermaine Dupri and Trey Songz - "I'm The Ish (Remix)" (mp3)
DJ Class f/ Lil Jon - "I'm The Ish (Official Remix)" (mp3)
The original version of "I'm The Ish", which was the #1 pick in my top 10 Baltimore club tracks of 2008 list, has been out for less than 3 months, and it's already gone farther than almost any Baltimore club song in a long long time. This week, Class signed with Universal Republic (via a production deal through Unruly) and the song will be getting a push from a major label, and already the song has gotten enough of a buzz around the country that several mainstream artists have jumped on official and unofficial remixes of the song. Jermaine Dupri and Trey Songz did their version just because they liked the song, and DJ Class went in the studio with Lil Jon himself for the official remix. It's been pointed out a couple times already, but this is the first time Lil Jon has performed on a Baltimore club track, after years of Baltimore producers sampling his voice a thousand different ways, so that's kind of cool. I interviewed DJ Class earlier tonight (article coming soon), and it turns out Lil Jon is actually pretty familiar with Baltimore club and knew Class's old records and everything. I have no idea how big this song is going to get but I'm pretty excited to see how far it goes.
THE RECORD IS ON FIRE!!!! IT FEELS GOOD TO SEE THE OG'S GET REWARDED FOR ALL THE HARD WORK WE PUT IN!!!!Post a Comment
