Tuesday night in NY, the good peoples at Cornerstone put together the Smirnoff Signature Mix Series show at Element. The performers were Q-Tip, Common and KRS-One. The concept was that each artist would perform their "Signature Mix" of one of their classic songs. Q-Tip's was a remix of "Midnight" by Cool and Dre, Common's was a remix of "The Light" by Just Blaze, and KRS-One's is "Criminal Minded '08" by DJ Premier. I don't personally think any of those songs need remixing, but it was a fun party and the new collaborations are more like new songs anyway, because the beats and rhymes are totally different from the originals.
Check out the video of the performances below... the new songs can be downloaded here.
Equally as important, I got to meet and take some pictures with a couple of my old school heroes Positive K and Melle Mel.
