Marvin Gaye & Mos Def are getting the Amerigo Gazaway Treatment

Together they are Yasiin Gaye and there will be more soon:

Amerigo Gazaway‘s new *Soul Mates* series continues the theme of his previous work in creating collaborations that never were. On the series’ first installment, the producer unites Brooklyn rapper Yasiin Bey (Formerly Mos Def) and soul legend Marvin Gaye for a dream collaboration aptly titled “Yasiin Gaye”. Building the album’s foundation from deconstructed samples of Gaye’s Motown classics, Gazaway re-orchestrates the instrumentation into new productions within a similar framework. Carefully weaving Bey’s dense raps and Gaye’ soulful vocals over his new arrangements, the producer delivers a quality far closer to Gaye’s famous duets than that of a “mashup” album. Watch the teaser video below and look out for the full album on February 25th!

Check out the first installment from the “album”, Inner City Travellin’ Man and rest assured: Once the full thing drops, it will be here on No doubt.
