2Pac x !llmind - #Tupacsquiat (BoomTrap Remix)

Washington D.C.-based illustrator Naturel will be relasing his ‘Tupacsquiat’ collection later

By //Music 

Washington D.C.-based illustrator Naturel will be relasing his ‘Tupacsquiat‘ collection later today, which is comprised of pieces combining aspects of 2Pac‘s music and qualities of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s artistic style. In celebration, producer !llmind has created a remix blending 2Pac’s song “Life Goes On” with some of his signature boomtrap production. Listen to the track above, and read up on what Naturel had to say about the forthcoming collection below.

“When I started this project a few weeks ago, I thought the whole Tupac and Basquait idea would be a cool little mash up, but then I started to realize that these two had very similar lives and careers. I realized that both Tupac and Basquait were very crude in their craft. Tupac wasn’t necessarily the best lyricist, he didn’t construct the best songs, but they were straight to the point. The crudeness, honesty and the instinct within those songs struck a chord. It was the same thing with Basquait, he wasn’t the most painterly of painters, but he was so instinctual that it embodied what it was to be an artist. Straight from the gut, straight from the heart.” – Naturel
