Myth Or Reality: Hip Hop Producer Nottz Remixes Susan Boyle?
via Hampton Roads & Vlad TV
Nottz, the somewhat reclusive Norfolk-based producer who's done tracks for everyone from Dr. Dre, Kanye, Biggie and many more, has remixed Susan Boyle's "I Dream a Dream" and posted it on YouTube.
Now, us being only marginally interested in Boyle -- we don't really see why it's considered a big deal that a fugly lady can sing (have you never been to church?) -- we've always been kind of 'meh' about her and this song. But we must say, Nottz's sparse, snare and kick drum beat laid over the orchestral song make it sound pretty good. Really good, actually.
The only question is, why?
Perhaps Nottz was trying to send the message that he's so talented, he can take veritably any material and make it sound good.
Or maybe he was crunk off that egg nog and smoking on some mistletoe.
Child, I guess.
