Zebra Katz and Njena Reddd Foxxx’s ‘Ima Read’ is one of the best tracks of the year so far.
A remorselessly dark New York Vogue culture anthem which has exploded worldwide, the track was originally released for free on Mad Decent sub-label Jeffrie’s, and has since been adopted by Paris Fashion Week as one of the event’s favourite tracks.
As we reported a while back, the track is now due for a proper release through Mad Decent, complete with a cascade of remixes from Azealia Banks, Grimes and many more.
You can download one of the remixes, featuring sometime Massive Attack collaborator Tricky and Hypnotize Minds legend Gangsta Boo, below. It sees Tricky’s ghoulish, disturbingly intense whisper and Lady Boo’s disdainful drawl trade lines over Katz’ more sardonic delivery – with predictably excellent results.
‘Ima Read’ will be released through Mad Decent on September 16.
