Hype Williams - "Galice"By Noisey Staff
When Hype Williams released Find Out What Happens When People Stop Being Polite, And Start Gettin' Reel a couple years ago, we didn't really know what to think of it--People making dubs of stuff they found off YouTube? Sampling that skit of the baby crying from the Major Lazer album? They're actually named Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland and have nothing to do with Hype Williams the dude who directed 80% of all mainstream late '90s rap videos? Yet as time has bore on we've come to love the mysterious duo, especially when they drop stuff like "Galice" on us. It's all left turns and weird angles, starting with a militant beat that's made out of sirens and gunshots that devolves into an honest-to-gosh pop song from Blunt and Copeland.
