PR master and celebrated herbalist Snoop Dogg invited an award winning Welsh vegetable grower to his Cardiff show on the weekend, and got the poor old sod so caned he forgot to put his VIP pass down for the duration of his interview on the telly next day.
I was honoured to be asked to remix this, because it is a truly brilliant song and a modern classic. I have no idea why I decided to rap half of it in Welsh, but I did, and it was, strangely, the first time I’d ever recorded a verse in my ail iaith… I must do more.
Anyway, the band liked this remix so much they invited me to perform it with them at Bush Hall. I had an amazing time – rapping with a full band, drums and all, is a rare treat, and The Crimea are pros.
The sample at the beginning is taken from an interview with Susan Joy Rennison on Red Ice Radio. I recommend the hell out of those cats because they’re thorough… their archives are incredible, a real treasure trove. Hail them and their Swedish Swagger.
