Why We Like It: Yes, we know. You’ve already heard Future’s “Mask Off”. But you probably haven’t heard it remixed against this beat.
We bet you didn’t know that the original beat (what you might call ‘flute-like’) is sampled from Tommy’s Butler’s “Prison Song”, which was on a 1978 MLK tribute album. This remix takes the track one step further and samples it over a classic ‘boom-bap’ type of beat.
Fuck it, mask off.
