DJ Class f/ Kanye West - "I'm The Ish (Remix)" (mp3)
I told the story of this record and how it came to be a hit in my Baltimore City Paper feature a few weeks ago, but let me just rewind for a quick chronology of the last few months. November 2008: DJ Class leaks the record to Baltimore DJs. December 2008: the record spreads to LA and the south, and Jermaine Dupri and Trey Songz hop on the track. January 2009: the record goes national, DJ Class signs to Universal Records, and he goes in the studio with Lil Jon for the official remix. February 2009: Pitbull jumps on the Lil Jon remix. So that brings up to speed to March 2009: Kanye West sees DJ Class perform "I'm The Ish" in LA, and brings him to Hawaii to record another remix of the track. I'm not even the biggest fan of Kanye's recent AutoTune phase, but I'm just psyched as hell to see someone of his stature co-signing a Baltimore club record, it's the kind of thing I wasn't sure I'd ever see. Kanye even says "my crew be Unruly" at the end!
Attention!!! Those who hated on club music....what now!!!!.....lol Game over! Let the vets handle this "put bmore on the map" thing!!!
