Ahh shit… Mayer Hawthorne and Nottz? Now that’s how you start off a week. Check as the two link up for a cover of Otis Leavill’s 1969 original.

I met Nottz at Nightlife’s Dilla Tribute in L.A. and we just kept in contact. I had always been a fan of Nottz since the 90s. He sent me a bunch of beats and at first I had no idea what to do with any of them, but eventually it hit me… When Nottz sent me that batch – that particular beat stood out. It had the same chord progression as the Otis Leville, so I just went with it.

    I don’t really feel this. The beat is pretty dope. I actually had to stop it midway because the guys voice was pissing me off for some reason. Still a Mayer Hawthorne fan, just skipping this one.
