With the viral success of “Bing Bong,” NEMS has delivered yet another remix to celebrate today’s release of his latest project Bing Kong. Along for the ride are three of NY’s most tenured emcees in Fat Joe, Styles P and Busta Rhymes. NEMS broke down to Complex how the track came together.
“Fat Joe supported the track since it dropped, so I hit him and told him “Bing Bong” was getting a lot of play on the radio, and that I’m gonna do a remix. He told me to send it right over and he knocked it out” NEMS explained. “I wanted to make it, even more, NYC, so Vinny Idol (the producer of “Bing Bong”) also produces for D-Block, I told him I wanted to get Styles P on it as well, a few days later I had a verse from Styles.
“At this point, I’m happy to have two legends (Fat Joe & Styles P) on the remix and I was ready to turn it in when I randomly ran into Busta outside of a club in the city, you know NYC nights. Busta was like “Yo, I love “Bing Bong” is there a remix?” I let Busta know that Joey Crack and Ghost were already on it and that I was about to turn it in, and he told me he would record a verse and get it to me tomorrow. Busta was a man of his word; he sent the verse the next day and that’s how the “Bing Bong” (Remix)” came together.”
NEMS’ Bing Kong project features two additional remixes: an underground version with Vado and Shoota93, and an “H-Town Remix” with Trae Tha Truth and Paul Wall. Purchase or stream Bing Kong via your preferred DSP.
