H/T to 2DopeBoyz for hipping me to this.
"Starboy" was already a banger. The Daft Punk-aided Weeknd single was destined for big things musically. That much has been known since the track released last year. However, with all the remixes of "Starboy" circling around the internets, it's a surprise we're just getting an "NYC take" on the track.
Enter DJ Doo Wop's "Suede Fronts" remix. DJ Doo Wop and the legendary AZ hop on this one and just grimy it the hell out, giving it an edge even unseen in the original. We even get some Raekwon vibes and "Human Nature" thrown in for good measure. Overall? I'm loving this take on the track, but I'll admit. I'm biased because I grew up on 90s NYC rap (like a good portion of you) and AZ was one of my favorite artists out of the era. Even with that in mind, the track is flame emojis throughout. So, embrace your '90s baby today and give this one a listen below.
