Remix > OG
Before I delve into an entire post of remixes that take dumps on the OGs later this week, let me give you a sneak preview with some of this shit.
This is an unofficial joint that leaked, here's the full story from OKPlayer
This is NOT the official remix...at least not yet. The guy who produced the track (Big Moz) is a member of the Diversify Fundz production team in Cali. Another team (The Defkidz from Seattle did the vocal production). Diversify Fundz was asked by Geffen to do a remix of "Testify" to be considered for the "Be" re-issue. Their manager and Big Moz ran into Darien at the West Hollywood LB show and asked him to sing the hook and add some other vocals to the remix...which he did (quite well, if you ask me).
As is stands right now, the folks at Geffen are planning to meet with Diviersfy Fundz's manager to discuss how (or if) the remix will be used. No offense to BKyle, but I'm not sure how he could have heard this "a while back" on the tour bus, because this was only recorded about a week and a half ago...and this particular mix is only a few days old.
Common (Sense) feat. Darien Brockington - Testify (remix)
Regardless, this is hotter than the lackadaisacal remix, the beat is filled with an executioners urgent dirge.
