[MP3 Playlist] Indie Dojo (April 2013 Round# 1)

Welp, spring break is pretty much over. But no need putting on the sad ninja pants. It only means we are that much closer to warmer days, skimpy clothing, songs about summer love, BBQs, beach parties and plenty of indie dojos to make all those things 1000 times better.

Young Jeezy
R.I.P. (Remix) Feat. Kendrick Lamar, YG & Chris Brown

Kendrick Lamar is officially the most popular kid on the block. Everywhere you turn, it seems like somebody is recruiting K. Dot for a spot on their newest single or remix. With that being said, it’s no surprise that Young Jeezy turned to the “Hottest MC In The Game” to replace 2 Chainz on the remix for his hot new single. What may surprise you is what other cohorts were invited to the party. Joining Kendrick on the remix are YG and Chris Brown. While Kendrick definitely bodies the beat, Chris Brown does nothing more than rattle a few cages, taking some shots at Drake and Frank Ocean. Regardless, you should definitely expect to hear this version of the track everywhere over the next few months, especially with summer right around the corner.
