East London's Murkage Dave is sharing today a remix for "Keep Up The Bad Work," after dropping the video just yesterday. This new flip on the vulnerable song about internal communication features a verse from Lansky Jones, a member of Queens hip-hop collective, World's Fair.
Dave explains in an email that aside from sharing stories about the black experience in their respective countries, he and Jones were both able to be honest about their pasts, and admit that all of their decisions have shaped who they are today. Dave adds, "Plus when everyone was hyping about this Popeye's burger I could shout him [Jones] and get the real review seeing as I couldn't try that shit over here."
The new remix will be one of five on the upcoming Murkage Dave Changed My Life: Special Edition album, out September 13. In addition to a new original song, the special edition record will feature World's Fair's Jeff Donna, Stones Throw's Peyton, South East London's Lioness, Brighton's Frankie Stew and Harvey Gunn, West London producer and vocalist Narx, and South London singer JGrrey.
You can catch Murkage Dave in Europe on his Keep Up The Bad Work Tour in October.
