Year of the Edit - Mike 2600

Each week in 2011, the "Year of the Edit," Dollar Bin Jams and Young Robots Records will be debuting one exclusive edit for your enjoyment!

This week's edit comes to us from Mike 2600 out of Minneapolis, a dude who has long been known for top notch DJing, digging chops and graphic design. I first saw Mike play in a basement in St. Louis in the late 90s, and I was impressed as hell with him then, and I haven't ceased to be since.

Mike dropped a nice little party break which brings a hype New Orleans bounce and old school gangsta walk flavor to the B.O.B./Bruno Mars smasher from last year.

Good thing, because even though all the ladies of the Big 10 will still get hype about the OG, it's the kinda tune that has Fake Ghostface saying things like
Ayo these little cushion niggas is violatin my gate son... Aint nobody draggin yall tenderhearted bitches over to where a nigga be enlightenin his disciples namsayin...Yalls aint worthy of no palms on ya face you jus be gettin those short backhanded slaps nahmean. Yalls gotta earn closed fists nahmean. ...Yalls aint a niggas clientele like that...Ayo matter fact Imma keep talkin bout those soft niggas that yalls is defendin like that anyway. Namsayin... Word bond that nigga Aubrey jump on a beat n he go soft as a muthafucka ey single time son. The nigga on some Bruno Mars shit. N that snow nigga Asher he alright...a nigga aint wanna throw him off no mountain or nothin like that...but he got custard in his heart son. Ya nigga Charles Hamiltons a human speedbag son...Summa yall cant handle that truth...You aint cut from divine fabrics like that namsayin... These soft niggas even breathe on you n you gon be spittin nursery rhymes over Lady Gaga joints and coppin Scions n shit. Yall gon be rockin rubber jewelry n fruit salad outfits n shit.
So basically what I'm sayin is that now you have an edit of a tune with a Bruno Mars hook that you can play without compromising your street-wise image.
