I just wanna take you out and show you off, whines a warped version of Future on London producer Visionist's incisive remix of the Atlanta rapper's "I Won." Kanye's verses are markedly absent, replaced with a digital soup of glitches and pointed vocal snippets sourced from Ciara a capellas—stuff like I would never lie and say that you're sorry, Visionist explained to The FADER over email. "They say there is nothing that is perfect and here is an example of it," he continued. "Focusing on Future and Ciara's relationship, I wanted to show the dark aspect of the myth term of 'perfection.' 'Perfect' might be one of the most dangerous words." Powerful stuff.
