On his latest project titled Yesterday’s Future, Floridian rapper Laws took quite the interesting approach to his mixtape by featuring remakes of several Paul McCartney songs.
“I went through all the solo catalogs over the years and I really liked how different one Paul McCartney song sounded from the next it kind of reminded me of me,” Laws explained. “You know the way I like to approach music and I just got tired of listening to Hip Hop beats for a minute. I think I still am.”
Yesterday’s Future includes production from the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League as well as Feb 9 of production duo Phan 4.
“When Laws first came to me with the project I wasn’t too familiar with the song and the way it sounded. It was very unique and he was very adamant in a specific part of the track that he wanted,” said Feb 9. “The problem that I had was I was kinda in my Hip Hop making mindset.”
According to Rook of the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League the project may have started off as something smaller and worked its way into a full project from Laws.
“It was like his interpretation of what Paul McCartney was talking about,” Rook explained. “I was like ‘yo, this shit was so dope that you should make a whole project.’”
