99 Problems (Beaker Remix)

’99 Problems (Beaker Remix)’ by Jay-Z   (September 18, 2011) *

It isn’t the terrific job on the electronica/dub instrumental, and it isn’t the ballsy attempt to re-interpret one of the most fanatically popular rap songs of our generation.  It’s the unsuspectingly amazing fit the a cappella makes slowed down with the dubstep aesthetic.  Holding the original together is probably the first thing Beaker did right, too many remixes completely ignore the original composition.
