Common, KRS-One, A Tribe Called Quest Breathe New Life Into Classics

Common, KRS-One and A Tribe Called Quest have each revived one of their classics for Smirnoff vodka’s latest campaign. Common teamed with Just Blaze to remix his 2000 hit ‘The Light’ — which was originally produced by the late J Dilla (also known as Jay Dee) — off his critically-acclaimed fourth album, ‘Like Water for Chocolate.’

KRS-One collaborated with DJ Premier to rework the Boogie Down Productions classic ‘Criminal Minded.’ Meanwhile, A Tribe Called Quest linked up with Cool and Dre to create a new version of ‘Midnight’ off 1993’s hip-hop classic, ‘Midnight Marauders.’

All three tracks are available for free download at
