The latest episode of the Pitchfork.tv series â€œSelectorâ€ is pretty special. In a deviated from the usual â€œSelectorâ€ formula (in which rappers choose from two beats produced by indie artists for a freestyle backing track), we brought Dipset MC Jim Jones and mashup maestro Girl Talk together in Jonesâ€™ Nomad District studio. Together, they created a new track: â€œBelieve in Magicâ€, produced by Girl Talk using a sample of 1970s soul group Honey Coneâ€™s â€œWant Adsâ€ and freestyled by Jones. Jones liked the results much that he brought in RB crooner Lloyd to contribute a hook and plans to release it as a single in the near future.
Stream the version with Lloydâ€™s vocals over at Pitchfork.
