Outkast Share Rare Zack de la Rocha Remix of ‘B.O.B.’
This version is part of the hip-hop duo's 'Stankonia' 20th-anniversary release
With the 20th-anniversary reissue of Outkast’s Stankonia dropping on Friday (Oct. 30), the duo shared one of the rare tracks that will appear on the record — the remix of “B.O.B. (Bombs Over Baghdad)” by Zack de la Rocha of Rage Against the Machine.
Only released to radio, the RATM frontman worked on it in September and October 2000 at Southern Tracks Recording in Atlanta — adding aggressive guitar riffs giving it more grit and edge to already frenetic track.
“Zack added an extra layer of grunge to a masterpiece,” Big Boi told Rolling Stone.
Meanwhile, Andre 3000 said, “I’m a fan of the Rage sound so it was an honor to have them involved in a remix.”
The bundle will also include Ms. Jackson” and “So Fresh, So Clean” in a cappella versions of the songs along with assorted remixes and radio edits. It will also feature the Mr. Drunk Remix of “Ms. Jackson,” the Stankonia Remix of “So Fresh, So Clean” (featuring Snoop Dogg & Sleepy Brown).
