Gil Scott Heron - New York Is Killing Me 2010 (get it)
Clap with me.
KCRW has been running a version of this song with a MosDef guest rap on it for the last week.
Nothing against MosDef, but I think I prefer the original. First time I heard it was at the Deaf Institute in Manchester about a month ago. It was the champagne song in the DJ’s set. All the kids on the dance-floor went nuts like it was Lil’ Weezy. Their mainstream is our Indie. Still so crazy to me.
