Following Puff Daddy & the Family’s performance at the BET Awards, Hot Damage has dropped a twerk remix of “It’s All About the Benjamins.”
The original version, which was released 17 years ago and hit number one, is a staple in many throwback sets. Hot Damage’s 100 BPM rework makes it playable in the peak time, though, thanks to new drums and a festival friendly drop.

Rising hip-hop duo Krept & Konan stopped by BBC Radio 1Xtra this week and covered The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Mo Money Mo Problems” with a live band.
Though they’ve been a group since 2009, it wasn’t until their Jeremih-assisted single “Freak of the Week” that the London rappers really took off. The dancehall-influenced song, which features production from DJ Mustard, was the second most-downloaded track in May on DJcity, and in June they signed a deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing UK.
Watch their performance above, and grab “Freak of the Week” and its remixes on DJcity.

Legendary funk and soul artist James Mtume reflects on his 1983 hit “Juicy Fruit” in a new video from Red Bull Music. The song was sampled for The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy” in 1994 and is still considered a classic to this day.
“I didn’t quantize it — I didn’t want it to be even. Quantizing that beat would’ve been sterile. I wanted to feel like a human being playing it.”
In the second half of the video, DJ Evil Dee (Black Moon, Da Beatminerz) makes his own version of “Juicy Fruit” with the SP-1200 drum machine and sampler. The Brooklyn-based DJ/producer also reflects on hearing “Juicy Fruit” for the first time:
“I spun ‘Juicy Fruit’ at various parties and it was just tearing parties down. It was destined for somebody to rhyme on it.”
