I run New York // is killing me

It's only appropriate that someone so well acquainted with digital culture as Michigan-born rapper, Angel Haze, gets chopped up by Jamie XX. Her breakthrough single, "New York," is layered over Jamie's re-imagined version of Gil Scott Heron's "New York is Killing Me," in the remix released today. Heron's slowed down, melancholic howl layered under Haze's barking braggadocio captures something poignant about the city that can make you feel like you own it and  at times, rip you down to nothing.

Yesterday Haze tweeted, I like the Jamie XX version of New York better. We won't say better, but it's been on repeat all morning.

Listen to the Jamie XX remix of Angel Haze's "New York" below.
