African Remixes – Gyptian "Hold Yuh"


Gyptian’s “Hold Yuh” track has been a banger everywhere for a while now and various artists across the world have been jumping on the track and creating thier own versions. It’s a trend that has been there for a while and will always be a medium for artists to create remixes.

Many East African artists have still not caught up on the “Jumping on other people beats” trend while on the flip side artists especially from Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa have been doing unofficial remixes using tracks from tons of artists including Lil Wayne, Beyonce, Rihanna, Movado and many more.

I’ve always told artists that “Jumping on other people beats” for unofficial remixes opens up tons of doors in terms of writing skills, song arrangement and overall song composition. Most artists use the tracks as promotional material for thier street albums and mixtapes and creates that street buzz, since you are jumping on a song that is already hot.

A good example I always give is when Vybz Kartel voiced over Ne-Yo’s “Miss Independent” instrumental for his “Romping Shop” version. When “Romping Shop” came out,  Ne-Yo’s publishing company wrote to Vybz’s team stating that Rompin Shop was infringing on the copyright license of the “Miss Independent” record. Ne-Yo’s record label even forced the song to be pulled from all radio stations, television stations plus you-tube.  After thinking about it again, Ne-Yo’s record company reversed its decision to yank the song since it saw the win-win situation in the matter since “Romping Shop” was also a club banger, which meant it gave more “free” marketing for “Miss independent”.  Record companies have now caught up to the trend and will purposely release instrumentals with just one verse and chorus for other artists to jump on.

Anyways, here are some “unofficial” remixes to Gyptians ‘Hold Yuh” done by Grip Boyz from Nigeria and Klu Boboo and Kevin Nash from Ghana. I believe I have one from Dafari From Kenya and will post later on today.
