Just Blaze’s recent talk with RevoltTV about The Black Album got me thinking about Hov’s older material. In the clip, Just details the work put into “Public Service Announcement” and reveals how the song ended up replacing “Looking At My S. Dots” on the final release (thank gawwwd).

After the countless remix albums came out (shouts to Danger Mouse, Kno, 9th Wonder and Kev Brown for being some of my favorites), S. Carter: The Re-Mix (peace to Dre on the linkage) was birthed. An official collection of remixes and original content, featuring the likes of Just Blaze, 9th Wonder, Madlib, Kanye West, dead prez and more.

The verses on my ‘PSA’ remix are completely different. I just wanted to do remixes that felt like entirely new songs. If you heard it for the first time, you’d never think it was a remix.” – Just to MTV
