Yeezus is barely two weeks but opinions and remixes on it multiply by the day. “New Slaves” acts as the common ground between each phenomenon and Lakim’s interpretation has the Soundcloud kids talking.
Thought “New Slaves” lacked drums, energy and everything in between? Lakim has you covered. This remix drops the art-school beat direction for a more antagonistic sound. The style switch helps on Kanye’s second verse as he does his patented rap-rant. My opinion on Yeezus as a whole hasn’t fully formed but I dug the “New Slaves” joint from the first listen.
Is this what the kids call “turnt up?” It sure sounds like it.
