Gods & Monsters Enjoy Chill Trap

As I continue to build fences around what constitutes Trap music, I'm at a bit of a loss with the one below. Usually I associate Trap with loud, energetic Hip Hop sounding beats, but that's being challenged with ViLLAGE's remix of Lana Del Rey's Gods & Monsters. If you missed the original version, it landed on Lana's Paradise Edition of her debut album Born to Die. Feel free to check out is the video of the original for reference.

On the other hand, the beat on the remix is a little heavier, but sounds like a lullaby, which fits well with the tone of the lyrics. The result is super chilled out, but admittedly more engaging than the original. The best part about it? You can head on over to Thissongissick to cop it for free...#ChillTrap
