The DopeHouse is proud to premiere this sample free joint J57 created for Cage two and a half years ago. In his own words:
I made this sample-free remix for Cage exactly 2 and a half years ago – it’s time for it to finally be released!
This remix is really personal to me. One of my best friends/mentor, Bryan “Ports” Coyle (R.I.P), first put me on to Cage back in High School and I’ve been a big fan since. I received the call to remix a song for Cage from Jim at Soulspazm, just five minutes after receiving the absolutely devastating news that Ports passed away.
I was told that they needed the remix as soon as possible and I also found out that Port’s wake was that same night back home on LI. So, I rounded up the troops (mine and Ports’ crew, The BCF) to all meet up in Manhattan and roll together back to LI for the wake.
I had literally an hour to do this remix.
I couldn’t even see straight but I knew I had to do this remix for Ports.
It’s an honor to remix a song for Cage / to have Mighty Mi co-sign me doing so.
This remix is also me paying tribute to my brother Ports.
Thanks for listening.
