It's Monday, which means there's a new installment of Big Boi's Mashup Mondays series out today. This time, Big Boi's "Shoes For Running (feat. B.O.B. & Wavves)" is mashed up with Third World's classic 1985 track, "How Can You," to make "Run Th3 World." This mashup comes six days after the tragic death of Third World's frontman William 'Bunny Rugs' Clarke. Bunny Rugs died of leukemia at 65 years old.
The track trades in the rock drums and rough bass line of the original track for Third World's signature synth heavy reggae beat. The two songs work thematically well together. Big Boi spits a verse about the 1% with Bunny Rugs singing the hook, "How can you let the children cry?" Watch the video above or stream it on Soundcloud.
The track is the fourth installment of Mashup Mondays, all four tracks having been remixed by a producer named Dungeoneze. Last week, Big Boi released "GossipZilla."
