Aaron LaCrate & Debonair Samir, top purveyors of the explosive Baltimore club sound, have stepped to the plate to overhaul this classic track. Young MC’s fast-rap rhymes on “Know How Theme” are ideally suited to LaCrate & Samir’s hyperactive beats. As Lacrate says: “When I was a kid growing up in Baltimore I loved Young MC. I would make mixtapes where one side would be up-tempo club jams and the other side would be golden era hip-hop. So now for me and Samir to merge them into one thing is a dream come true. It’s the best of two kinds of party music.”
The accompanying video features an updated take on a vintage Young MC performance on that staple of late night tv that we all miss: The Arsenio Hall Show. whoo whoo whoo!
