Published Oct 28, 2011Following a recent deal with Fat Possum, El-P has released a reworked version of his track "Drones Over BKLYN." The rhymes are laid over a sample of Rush classic "Tom Sawyer," resulting in the new track "Rush Over BKLYN."
All download proceeds are going towards El-P's friend and collaborator Mr. Dibbs, who is battling liver disease. El-P released a statement explaining the reasoning behind the new song:
I did this because I think it's an interesting idea and approach to the sample clearance issue. Most importantly I hope this raises awareness and money for my good friend, collaborator and hip hop legend Brad Forste aka DJ MR DIBBS. He is suffering from cirrhosis of the liver and (like so many of us) uninsured. He has racked up almost a half a mil in hospital bills after just one month, and he needs help. All proceeds from this song go to him.
Listen to the track in the player below and purchase it at the Legitmix, a service that lets artists legally sample music without going through a sample-clearing process.
