The Fugees – Ready or Not (Whiiite Remix)
Shadow-clad Los Angeles-based producer, Whiiite, is showing fans his appreciation with the release of his newest material. In celebrating reaching 50,000 followers on Facebook, Whiiite’s latest comes as a bass-riddled rendition of the Fugee’s hip-hop classic “Ready or Not.” Shrouded in mystery, the graphic novel enigma who has come to life off of the pages has brought another smooth trap infusion to a hip-hop favorite as he bends Lauryn Hill’s chilling vocals through a thumping odyssey of 808’s.
With the addition of a bumping drum arrangement, Whiiite leaves a lot of the appeal to the original song’s unmistakable hook, chopping the lyrics between snaps. The hair-raising build breaks as the song tows the line between hip-hop and dance music, layering Ms. Hill’s verse over trap synths reminiscent of 90’s west coast rap music. Artfully blending cutting-edge bass music with a vintage hip-hop gem, Whiiite successfully updates The Fugees distinct brand of rap, reggae and soul.
