Pitchfort.tv series “Selector” brings us this collab between Jim Jones, Girl Talk and Lloyd for this 1970s soul group Honey Cone “Want Ads” sampled record titled “Believe in Magic”.
The latest episode of the Pitchfork.tv series “Selector” is pretty special. In a deviated from the usual “Selector” formula (in which rappers choose from two beats produced by indie artists for a freestyle backing track), we brought Dipset MC Jim Jones and mashup maestro Girl Talk together in Jones’ Nomad District studio. Together, they created a new track: “Believe in Magic”, produced by Girl Talk using a sample of 1970s soul group Honey Cone’s “Want Ads” and freestyled by Jones. Jones liked the results much that he brought in R&B crooner Lloyd to contribute a hook and plans to release it as a single in the near future.
