Merrill Garbus – aka tUnE-yArDs – has always been big into hip-hop; you just need to listen to either of her two cut’n’shut DIY records to hear that. Recently, though, she’s ventured into the genre more overtly than ever, performing live on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon with The Roots as her backing band [watch it below] and now asking Beastie Boy Adrock to remix her new single ‘Gangsta’.

Merrill Garbus – aka tUnE-yArDs – has always been big into hip-hop; you just need to listen to either of her two cut’n’shut DIY records to hear that. Recently, though, she’s ventured into the genre more overtly than ever, performing live on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon with The Roots as her backing band [watch it below] and now asking Beastie Boy Adrock to remix her new single ‘Gangsta’.

You can download Adrock’s re-working of the track for free below, but if you also want the original version, as well as a remix by Cut Chemist, an a capella version and the song’s instrumental track, you’ll have to buy a physical copy of the single, available on 12″ from September 12 2011.
