The idea for the song came from a couple of samples, and the track’s vibe is earnest and has a pressing tone to it. The lyrics are commentaries of our struggles and successes, our weaknesses and strengths… the experiences… and trials and tribulations we have faced as human beings, a race, and as individuals. Lyrically Chuck brings a sense of authority and urgency. The power in his voice demands your attention. With Chuck on the track this is a dream come true for us.
It’s next to impossible to put down the creative genius that is Cookin’ Soul. With nearly a decade of remixes, and mashups under their belts, the Spanish duo has proven to the world that they have a knack for bringing out the best in any artist they decide to sonically reconstruct. But what would happen if they took a direct flight to Queens? On the Big Noyd, Large Professor and Kool G Rap featured street banger “Naturally Born,” that’s exactly what happens. After recently appearing on Coalmine Records’ decennary compilation LP, Unearthed, the original Ayatollah produced head nodder, provided a nostalgic backdrop for the trio to do their thing; this time around, Cookin’ Soul have taken the track to new heights by giving an Uprock-themed overhaul to the original, connecting more to the era of Shell Toes and dookie rope chains, than the time when Timbos and gold medallions reigned supreme. Both versions are now available through Coalmine Records as a limited edition 7-inch 45, exclusively for #BlackFriday, which can be purchased via Fat Beats. For more hard hitting, innovative remixes, make sure to check out the January 20th release of Remineded: A Collection of New & Old Remixes, which includes features from the likes of Blu, Royce da 5’9″, Heltah Skeltah and Kool G Rap, and includes remixes from Large Professor, Diamond D, M-Phazes, Audible Doctor, and more! ‘Remineded’ is now available for pre-order, via iTunes.
