Rah Digga – “Solidified” (Khrysis Remix)

With a Los Angeles performance last night and “Straight Spittin’ 4.5” still fresh in listeners’ ears, Rah Digga is right back to work, dropping the latest remix from Classic, her highly lauded sophomore album released late last year. This remix, for the song “Solidified,” finds the Jersey representative teaming up with North Carolina producer Khrysis, who, in addition to making up one half of the group The Away Team, has worked with artists including Little Brother, Skyzoo, Jean Grae, Sean Price, Masta Ace, and more. While the vocals remain in tact for this particular remix, Khrysis breathes new life into the song. While the original, produced by Nottz, who handled production duties for the entirety of Classic, features a smattering of funk guitar chops, rolling bass, and syncopated drums, Khrysis gives the song a more pronounced backbeat, utilizing a mix of piano chops, synths, and steady drums, all the while allowing Digga’s lyrics shine.
