Many Men by Gonzales
Teki hit us up with a little something to make us smile but we’ll let him do the talking.
“Here’s a little gift from my friend Gonzales (who as some of you may know is currently wrapping up his next album produced by none other than Boys Noize). It’s some sort of piano remix of the old 50 cent hit “Many Men”. It’s taken from his piano mixtape “Pianist’s Envy” dropping soon on the interwebs, on which he plays piano over rap instrumentals, remixes rap acapellas with piano on top, and re-arranges house songs piano/orchestra style, it’s pretty unique and amazing. Here’s a word about it from the maestro himself
“Chilly Gonzales presents the first-ever piano mixtape “Pianist’s Envy”. You know those rap beats and electro songs with almost nothing in them? “Tipsy”, “Grindin'”, “A Milli”, “Rollin’ and Scratchin'”, “Single Ladies”? Chilly goes all Liberace on these beats with his piano and his orchestra. Claude Von Stroke, 50 Cent, Kelly Clarkson, Rocky Balboa and Gonzo himself all make cameos. Dropping mid-February 2010 via chillygonzales.com.”
Tracklist for the mixtape + tourdates for the piano talk show after the jump.
