So apparently this remix has been out for a few months now, but I am just getting hip to it, and I know that some of ya'll may be too so it's all right. I was just jamming along to whoever was playing some Biggie not too long ago outside my dorm, and I decided to listen to some as well on my laptop and I somehow came across this White Lotus mashup/remix of Notorious B.I.G.'s 'Suicidal Thoughts' which blends the chorus and the beat of Ye's 'Runaway.' There's just something about that beat which makes any song or verse just that much more sentimental and the song like a billion times better. I'm not really a fan of the original song because I thought Yeezy could have done more with the verses, and the first version of the song I actually heard was that by the one and only Carlos St. John (listen here), and I just fell in love with that version. However, the powerful reflections of B.I.G.'s 'Suicidal Thoughts' mashed up with the 'Runaway' beat are just incredible. Shoutouts to DJ White Lotus and the crew for putting this together, it's pure genius.
