Blackalicious's Gift of Gab is set to release the aptly titled album Next Logical Progression on the Bay Area's Quannum Projects later this month. The talented wordsmith's "Wack But Good People" has been remixed by Wavves and Kynan Williams, younger brother of Wavves frontman Nathan Williams. "I used to listen to [Blackalicious'] Blazing Arrow on repeat with my friends in high school," says Williams, "so working with Gab is kind of full circle for me."

"Wack But Good People," says Gab, is "a song about a homie trying to get on, but he kinda needs a little more work first. It's all in good fun and humor. Remix is bananas." Check it out for yourself: Next Logical Progression comes out March 27th, but you can download the "Wack But Good People" remix here.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
