Smirnoff Vodka makes underground hip hop

Smirnoff Vodka has launched a new website called the Smirnoff Signature Mix Series. It pairs some pretty sick emcees with various amazing producers to produce what could be seen as some sellout tracks. They’re remixes for the modern day of some old classics. And each one comes with a drink recipe, so check it out here.

At the site you can download the tracks and watch some pretty awesome studio footage of them being recorded, so I highly suggest it. But, for your auditory pleasure, I’ve gone ahead and streamed the tracks for you. So check them out below.

  1. i’m not feeling that KRS-One track as much (mostly because of the beat, but it may grow on me after a while). the common and tribe remixes are damn good though

  2. That is a great tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere.

    Short but very precise info… Many thanks for sharing this one.
    A must read post!
