Scratch Magazine #11 : The Roots Cover

R.I.P. to J Dilla. Excellent section called 25 Greatest Remixes, going to pause this post and listen to them all…. *AFK*…. I’m back, I hate to say it but it’s about 60/40 in favor of the originals, I think some of the remixes are just thought to be better off the names, like Pete Rock’s House of Pain Jump Around Remix, which I don’t like, and Erick Sermon’s How High remix for Meth and Red. Anyhow, number one was Public Enemy – Shut Em Down Remix by Pete Rock.

Very nice cover. Nice promo for Tajai of the Souls of Mischief member. Love the Tajai logo which resembles the G.I.Joe Logo.
