Go ahead, envy me, I’m rap’s MVP

Elaborately staged promo shot
Here’s one of the best rap hooks I’ve heard in ages. It comes from a Vancouver pop musician, Jay Arner. A member of Fine Mist as well as an occasional solo artist, he used to lead a band called International Falls. In 2008, that band released a remix album, which mashed up songs from the LP Achievement with rap and R&B tracks by Kanye West, R. Kelly and more.

Here’s the International Falls remix of “Hate It or Love It,” originally by the Game with 50 Cent. This version improves on the already-awesome original with a catchy-as-hell chord progression and jaunty drum loop. This is a hip-hop track that’s sure to win over the indie kids.
