Any established rap head out there knows about the original version of the new song “Renegades” off of the recently released Bad Meets Evil mixtape.
Jay-Z’s classic album The Blueprint had only one featured rapper on it: Eminem. They did the song “Renegade”, which is considered a near-classic in most hip-hop circles. Nearly 10 years later, Bad Meets Evil (the combination of Eminem and Royce da 5’9″) have released a remixed version with an extra verse from Royce. The original beat, produced by Eminem, was pretty dirty, but the new track has a great vibe to it.
If you’re averse to the remixing of classic hip-hop songs, you might want to turn away and forget you saw this post, but if you’re curious, the whole album is available for free download here. You could always pony up the dough for an official copy, but the term “support broke rappers” doesn’t really apply here.
