N.O.R.E. to Remake Gang Starr’s “Dwyck” on New Solo Album [With Video]

Yesterday (August 25) on XXL‘s UStream show, Spotlight, N.O.R.E. came by the XXL offices and announced that he’ll be working with DJ Premier to remake Gang Starr’s classic track, “Dwyck.”

While sharing some nutcrackers with the XXL staff, one half of C-N-N revealed that for his upcoming solo project, currently titled Superthug, he’ll be collaborating with Premo for an update of “Dwyck,” which appeared on Gang Starr’s seminal 1994 release Hard to Earn. On the original, the late Guru was joined by Nice & Smooth to ride on Premier’s production. For the 2011 version, Nore said that he had yet to select the guests to appear on the record, but he wanted XXL’s input.

“I have not chosen [who to reach out to],” he said. “I would like y’all ideas; who should I put on?” He continued, “Let’s get the new era MCs, let’s give them a chance to pay respect, to pay homage.” [Watch below].

As for the sound of the record, Nore simply stated, “It’s gonna be that beat, redone.”

Be sure to check out our next episode of Spotlight next Wednesday and stay tuned to XXLMag.com for more info on “Dwyck 2011.” —Adam Fleischer

    No disrespect to NORE, but I personally wish people would stop remaking classics. Especially classic hip-hop records. I understand the NORE wants to remember Guru. But not like this. Rethink this one.

    Co-sign what Sha says. Nore needs to fall back, DWYCK is classic material that doesnt need to be touched….There are other ways to honor Guru.

    So what would be another idea?

    Group Home said there gonna do a tribute project for Guru, and you know no one’s gonna check for that, and those were his homies.

    Preemo’s on deck to finesse the beat. The idea of the new cats jumping on it is good for the Gangstarr catalog exposure. And although I am one of the many who agree that certain songs should not be touched, but seriously, who’s playing DWYCK nowadays?

    Throw another idea out there, maybe they’ll read it and consider it…

    Please dont butcher that classic. Leave it alone!!!!

    @ Don mcCaine…..

    I don’t agree with you on that one. It’s not good for the Gangstarr catalog exposure. Why? Because you’re missing one very very crucial element. GURU.

    “Lemonade was a popular drink and it still is…”

    Who can fuck with a classic line like that? Leave it alone NORE.

      Milk milk lemonade around the corner fudge is made. lol Is that classic too?

  • http://www.emcdl.com EmCDL

    Ehh, I don’t know about this one. I honestly think that this song should be left alone and not remade, but at the same time, like Don said, it’ll give the GangStarr catalog more exposure to the young ones out there that will be curious about the original whereabouts of the song; to let Guru’s past songs teach them a lil something.

    But that song is so dope the way it is, the way Guru came on the track and Nice and Smooth did their thing on it….I don’t know, I’m curious of what it’ll sound like.

  • http://www.bboycult.com Don mcCaine

    @ Sha

    I hear you. I’m somewhat torn between this topic.

    Yet at the same time, the greatest flattery in the music industry is to do a cover song, or a remake of a classic.

    I can hear Jada re-doing ‘In Da Ghetto’ by Rakim.

    I could see Pac Div finessing ‘Electric Relaxation’.

    I can even muster Rozay doing ‘N^ggaz Bleed’.

    And again, instead of turning it down, what other idea would cats do to honor Guru? NORE’s website has the ping back, so they are checking in…

    Greg Nice – Busta Rhymes hands down would kill this!

    Smooth – Snoop or Nas would be good. You could make it a blunted, laid back verse for snoop or take it back to schooldaze and let Nas rock the kinte cloth kufi and a vest on some Krs-One teacher shit…

    I can’t wait to hear this one…

    I have to say, while checking through 100′s of blogs each week, the theme of this blog is different (for all the right reasons). If you don’t mind me asking, what’s the name of this theme or would it be a custom made affair? It’s significantly better than the themes I use for some of my blogs ;-)
