We previously reviewed the Illa J – Yancey Boys album review on Hip-Hop Kings which was met with a very positive response. We were contacted by Dekk who wanted to showcase the remix of Illa J’s new single Airplane. The original has had a massive radio response and did equally well on the blogs. Dekk stepped in and made a more uplifting, and club-suited remix that is just as pleasing as the original. The remix is official, and has been co-signed by Illa J on his MySpace page.

The guitar-rich melody is something Snoop Dogg has rapped over before, and likewise Warren G really gets into the song to produce a catchy verse. Flip Skateboard’s “Extremely Sorry” was released digitally on October 27th and can be purchased from the link below.
