Marvin Gaye + Yasiin Bey = Yasiin Gaye


By: Mamba

If you’ve never believed in a hip-hop miracle, BELIEVE NOW! Amerigo Gazaway of Gummy Soul records has combined the great Yasiin Bey and Marvin Gaye, and named the project “Yasiin Gaye”. In the past he’s relased conceptual mixtapes such as Fela Soul and Bizarre Tribe, but he really out did himself this time. This is apparently the first installment of a whole new series called “Soul Mates”. Now that I’ve relayed that life changing information on you, here’s some words from the source:

“Gazaway’s new *Soul Mates* series continues the theme of his previous work in creating collaborations that never were. On the series’ first installment, the producer unites Brooklyn rapper Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and soul legend Marvin Gaye for a dream collaboration aptly titled “Yasiin Gaye”. Building the album’s foundation from deconstructed samples of Gaye’s Motown classics, Gazaway re-orchestrates the instrumentation into new productions within a similar framework. Carefully weaving Bey’s dense raps and Gaye’s soulful vocals over his new arrangements, the producer delivers a quality far closer to Gaye’s famous duets than that of a “mashup” album.”

If you still are in disbelief that this GREATNESS is going to happen. Look below for the trailer for the project as well as the first leak “Inner City Travellin’ Man:
