Soulja Boy "Pretty Boy Swag (Shlohmo Remix)"

On Monday, XLR8R posted a link to download a free compilation from the Friends of Friends label entitled Pop Massacre that featured 13 pop memorables fully re-worked by beat-centric artists like DNTEL, Strangeloop, and Mexicans With Guns. Among re-interpretations of Prince, Mariah Carey, and Abba is San Francisco/L.A. hopper Shlohmo's version of Soulja Boy's "Pretty Boy Swag." The track is a great candidate for exploring new territory—the cavernous, graveyard-deep original is a nice fit for Shlohmo's cacophonous soundscapes. However, unlike his tightly wound version of Khia's "My Neck My Back" from earlier this year, here Shlohmo opts for a wounded vocal sample that pares down Pretty Boy's swaggiest moments to something resembling modesty.
