Notorious B.I.G.‘s son Christopher Jordan Wallace is honoring the legacy of the quintessential hip-hop classic his father wrote, “Big Poppa,” with a retro-inspired house remix.

Dialed-up with crisp electronic drum patterns, percussions, lush synths, tinkering hi-hats and soulful vocal harmonies, the reworked track riffs off the distinctive sounds of ’80s Chicago house. The instrumentals are also laced with smooth sax licks, topped off by a concise solo towards the bridge. Other sounds, like the iconic synthesizer and guitar riffs from the original, were also used in the making of this remix. “When it came to his music, it was the same thing, not using vocals, but really thinking about his spirit and the emotional connection that his music gives to his fans,” Wallace noted. “We always force ourselves to think bigger and more creatively about my dad.”
