Minnesota representative, Gaines, teamed up with Chicago native, Chance The Rapper, to deliver us the first single off his Night Crawler: Reloaded mixtape. It was shot and edited by Kevin Ceccon of NeoFilmMovement, who i’ve worked with on most of my “On The Spot” interviews. I’ve got to say this video was beautifully done and an amazing job on his part. A lot of videographers in this game today just shoot videos quickly with no thought process or composition. To top it off they do minimal editing and release the next day, but not this guy. This video has that cinematic look that really grabs the viewers attention. Aside from the video, this song is quality, sampling “We Are The People” by Empire Of The Sun, they speak of life’s realities and overcoming the challenges along the way. If you dig this track be sure to check out the full mixtape below and follow these guys on Twitter!

Posted by on April 30, 2012

Gaines is back with two new tracks for your listening ears. This time he goes over Kendrick Lamar’s newest release “The Recipe”, which Gaines dubs “Thinkin Out Loud”. Definitely a smooth track with a nice sound to it. Next up he goes over Y.G’s swaggy “I’m A Thug” instrumental. Gaines has smashed out 3 remixes lately, his last one being the remix of Mac Miller’s “Loud”. If you haven’t checked out some of Gaines past projects you can cop those below. They’re filled with original productions and lyrics.

Hip-Hop | Gaines – Chill Out (Loud Remix)

Posted by on March 28, 2012

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Macadelic remixes have begun! This one comes from my man Gaines who put his own spin on Mac Miller’s “Loud”. It’s titled “Chill Out” and I’m really feeling this one, especially his sound on the hook. Gaines is someone who I’ve been showing a lot of support for since he approached me months back to promote his video for “Mental“. Since then, he’s been on his grind and dropped a dope video which featured Mod Sun called “Party“. If you’re diggin’ Gaines you can check out his previous videos after the jump!
