Hear Zack de la Rocha’s Unearthed Remix Of OutKast’s B.O.B (Bombs Over Baghdad)
Ahead of the release of their 20th anniversary Stankonia reissue this Friday (October 30), OutKast have shared Zack de La Rocha’s brilliant remix of B.O.B (Bombs Over Baghdad).
The Rage Against The Machine frontman reworked the single some two decades ago, with his rendition previously only released on radio. Now, with the remix set to appear on Stankonia’s anniversary release alongside other rare material, the duo have made it available for all to hear on streaming platforms – and it was absolutely worth the wait.
“Zack added an extra layer of grunge to a masterpiece,” Big Boi tells Rolling Stone, while Andre 3000 adds, “I’m a fan of the Rage sound so it was an honour to have them involved in a remix.”
“We believe that the last thing that they want you to do is get out of your house and march down in person, mask on, and cast your ballot for what you think this country is supposed to be,” Run The Jewels’ El‑P said during the set. “We want you to go down there, and when you get there: Tell ’em Run the Jewels sent you.”
“Vote local,” added Killer Mike. “Vote down the ballot. Vote for your mayor, judges, prosecutors. For the people looking over your life. Vote the bastards out of office and keep the good folks in.”
