As he prepares to release his upcoming The Life And Times Of Sebastian Rios mixtape, Joell Ortiz has once again hit the web with an exclusive remix. “Night Train (Remix)” featuring Bun B and Tech N9ne is an official remix to the original “Night Train”, which Joell Ortiz dropped sometime in 2010.
The updated version finds Joell reaching out to Bun B and Tech N9ne for brand new verses to the story of blue collar struggles. With a soulful hook from Novel, the blues influenced tale of woe gives each MC the opportunity to speak for everyday people stuck in the grind. For Tech N9ne, the subject is all too familiar as he reflects:
“And now my life’s changed, me and Travis had to ignite Strange
Music, keep moving through it and fight pain
now the way I’m livin is nice mayne
Cuz eyes strained, got migraines, writin’ flames on the night train”
Somber and beautiful in its own painful way, “Night Train (Remix)” is a standout as one of the best collaborations to hit the net in 2011. Famous or not, everyone can relate to the hardships of everyday life.
