New dopeness from Blueprint and X:144

Blueprint "So Alive" remix by X:144

Orlando producer X:144's take on the latest Blueprint release is, like it's source material, wildly insistent. It rides a cavalcade of skittering percussion into a life-affirming, circutious vocal hook, which is grounded by some gritty power chords. Just for good measure, a scuzzy guitar solo burns through the second half, making it the perfect accompaniment to someone running away from an explosion or five. Listen to it again and you'll probably want Janelle Monae on the track. Actually, can someone at Rhymesayers make that call? Like, today?
