Yasiin Gaye (Yasiin Bey x Marvin Gaye) ‘The Departure: Side 1' by Amerigo Gazaway.




I have been waiting patiently for this project to drop since I first heard about it. The merge of these two incredibly soulful, and talented individuals, Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) and Marvin Gaye. Produced by Amerigo Gazaway the New"Soul Mates" series unites these two artists for a dream collaboration appropriately entitled "Yasiin Gaye". Gazaway produced the album from deconstructed samples of Gaye's Motown classics, Bey's callous flow and new organic arrangements. The soul oozing out of my speakers is down right Hypnotic. Pure Genius. Thank you Amerigo, HipHop thanks you, My soul thanks you..

Fabolous f. Jeremih "Thim Slick" [Video]


Marvin Gaye x Yasiin Bey = Yasiin Gaye (Official Teaser)


Amerigo Gazaway's new *Soul Mates* series continues the theme of his previous work in creating collaborations that never were. On the series' first installment, the producer unites Brooklyn rapper Yasiin Bey (Formerly Mos Def) and soul legend Marvin Gaye for a dream collaboration aptly titled "Yasiin Gaye". Building the album's foundation from deconstructed samples of Gaye's Motown classics, Gazaway re-orchestrates the instrumentation into new productions within a similar framework. Carefully weaving Bey's dense raps and Gaye' soulful vocals over his new arrangements, the producer delivers a quality far closer to Gaye's famous duets than that of a "mashup" album.
