Benja Styles – “Christopher Cobain – Big Poppa Fire”

The first track of our 7Tracks2Back series this week focuses on Philadelphia-based DJ/remixer/producer, Benja Styles, as he comes through in a really big way with a Biggie Smalls/Kurt Cobain mash-up which hits the perfect balance as many cross-genre remixes can’t or don’t.  I’ve heard other attempts at crossing Nirvana with iconic hip-hop artists (some failed … Continue reading Benja Styles – “Christopher Cobain – Big Poppa Fire”

Joyce Wrice – “Ain’t No Need”

Here’s a little throwback R&B gem from L.A.-based artist, Joyce Wrice, with the ever consistent MNDSGN working the beats.  According to Wrice, two years ago MNDSGN had sent her several beats and she selected this one as her favorite, wrote some lyrics with the help of SiR, and the rest is history.  The combination of … Continue reading Joyce Wrice – “Ain’t No Need”
