Mike Posner sent me a link to the next remix he put out today and as soon as I saw the lineup on the song, I got all jittery inside. I knew it would be a fun one, but was worried about it sampling Started From The Bottom. I was relieved when I heard that it sounds very little like Drake’s own “Started From The Bottom,” as it’s really minimalist piano as the instrumental. The song then builds into a full band collaboration, which is really fun to watch in the video (featured after the jump). This is a really fun one, and it sounds like they had fun putting it together. One thing I’d ask for is a bit more from Asher Roth, but hopefully Mike and Asher will do a collaboration in the future. Also, I have to say, I love the “Hey Ma” cover section thrown in there. My first listen was a bit mindless as I was doing work simultaneously, and all the sudden I was rapping along, wondering how the hell I already knew the lyrics. It took me a minute, but I figured it out. A little slow today, it seems.
