CMU Approved

Approved: Jay-Z & The Prodigy

By | Published on Wednesday 17 November 2010

I imagine you’re all familiar with both The Prodigy and Jay-Z. If not, all you need to know is that they’re both most famous for writing songs with the word ‘bitch’ in. Okay, that’s not true. Not in Jay-Z’s case, anyway. He’s most famous for playing an Oasis song at Glastonbury. But they have both previously written songs which feature the word ‘bitch’, that much is true. Can you imagine what would happen if they both appeared on one track at the same time, and that track contained the word ‘bitch’?

Wonder no more, friends and misogynists! Your time has come. For reasons not yet fully explained, other than that it’s one of Liam Howlett’s “all time favourite tunes”, there now exists a Prodigy remix of ’99 Problems’ by Jay-Z. And what does it sound like? Howlett, as you might be able to guess for yourself, takes the already fairly beefed up track and beefs it up even more with his heavy dance stylings.
