You may have heard this track by now, but I can’t not give love to Willy Joy. The dude has been around for a minute, and he smashes tracks with heavy beats that pound stupid hard through the dancehalls of cities worldwide. He made a special appearance in my city on mischief night this past year, and with an energy unparalleled he blew the roof off the place. It was pure madness. It was insanity.
It was “Crazy,” which is also the title of the tune he recently remixed, the original produced by Gianni Blu and featuring some awesome Chi-town rappers. Blu’s version is smooth Chicago drill, with the lyrical genius of King Louie, Lil Bibby, and EMP DASME. Willy Joy’s remix samples King L and Bibby against the whackiest mixture of speeds and sounds. I’m talking woodwind percussions and sirens and bass that are seriously psychotic.
The title really explains it all. The original talking about how crazy life is on the streets of Chicago, and Willy Joy bringing to life that sentiment in his psycho remix. I can see this dropping in any club, with Willy on the decks arms raising in the air with every build until they shoot to the sky, and pump along to the sickest of drops. Cop this free download for a taste of what that feels like.
