The Kids (feat. Janelle Monae) – B.o.B (Unreleased Version)

February 27, 2011

Sorry I don’t post more on the weekends, y’all. On Saturday I’m recovering from Friday and on Sunday I’m working. So I’m going to throw this old track up. Remember the hype last year as we approached Bobby Ray’s (B.o.B’s) album drop? It was so good! That was one of my favorite albums last year. This would have to be my favorite track on the album. I mean, it’s a soulful, beautifully produced hip-hop track, riffing off of a Vampire Weekend song. How great of an idea is that? Anyways, in the build up to the album’s release Pigeons and Planes would bless us with a leaked track here and there to get our appetite going. This was leaked, and I then bought the album. Imagine my surprise when the album version of this track was mixed subtly differently. Janelle’s role was reduced and the chorus was reshaped in later verses. I think I actually prefer this version. Since you can’t buy this anywhere, I thought I’d put it back into circulation. What do you think? Spot the differences? (Here’s the normal version).

  1. I LOVE THIS. I love Janelle Monae; The Archandroid was one of the best albums of 2010, and she’s really good on this track. I like it better than the album version.

    I know I’m a little late on this; I’ve been sick 😛 lots of sleeping and dehydration. Not fun.

    • Excellent. hope you’re feelin better!
