Yasiin Gaye - Inner City Travellin' Man by: Amerigo Gazaway

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. 

Watch the teaser video below and look out for the full album on February 25th !
