TroyBoi Posterizes MJ on Wallz

A heavy, chopped up remix of MJ? Yes please! I'm not going to go as far as saying I was a huge fan of Michael Jackson's original version of Off the Wall, but there's a certain delight that goes along with re-discovering an MJ track for the first time. If you aren't familiar with the track from 1979, it was the title track for his fifth studio album. Ride with me in the wayback machine below...
So why did TroyBoi remix MJ out of the blue? Well, yesterday would have been his 58th birthday, so we were blessed with a fresh new trappy rendition of one of his less appreciated tracks. On the remix, you'll get the unrefined goodness you're used to from any TroyBoi beat set to the background of a bouncy, almost haunting beat. Tracks like this allow us to imagine what it would be like if MJ was still around to collaborate DJs of today. I see that is a gift, which is fitting considering it was made for his birthday. Hat tip TroyBoi, I enjoyed livin' on the wall today while reminiscing over the king of pop...#Wallz
