Aaliyah “Are You That Somebody (Emynd’s Lollipop Blend)”
If you missed it, valedictorian homie (and resident hockey
dork expert) CAPS posted a really thorough, tasteful, and listenable Aaliyah mix over at the Fader blog, full of Caps’s favorite jams ranging from the obvious to the obscure. May she rest in peace. I was reading Caps’ description of his mix on his blog and noticed a side note where he says the following:
Note: I made a very deliberate choice to kind of put myself in the background here, aka no C-C-C-CAPS!!!!! drops, no Aaliyah vox over the new Lil Wayne beat, no super scratchiti defacing the Are U That Somebody instrumental.
Well, a couple days earlier, I had thrown the “Are You That Somebody” acapella on top of “the new Lil Wayne beat” and his mix helped me muster up the energy to post it on the blizzog. I know there’s already way too many damn Lollipop-related mixes out there, and really, nothing is touching Timb’s production on the OG “Are You That Somebody,” but I think this works. And for the DJs, it’s a good way to end the night.
