Listen to Hit-Boy's version Kanye West's 'New Slaves', 'New Chains'

The ‘Niggas In Paris’ and ‘Clique’ beatsmith offers his own take on the Yeezus standout.

The producer (who is no longer affiliated with Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music) has shared a remix of ‘New Slaves’ entitled ‘New Chains’. There are subtle changes to the production — a shifted beat here, a guitar solo there — along with all new lyrics. The song is inspired by James Somersett, a slave who used English and Welsh law to win his freedom in 1772.

Watch the video for ‘New Chains’ below. Hit-Boy, one of FACT’s producers to watch in 2013, was conspicuously absent from Yeezus, but did co-produce ‘Somewhere in America’ on Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail. [via MissInfo]
