Chilly Gonzales presents Pianist Envy

“Entertainment isn’t killing music, its music that is killing entertainment.”Chilly Gonzales

In honour of all things Canadia and anything that is the colours red & white Chilly Gonzales, bestows his piano magic upon us. He reaches into the club banger hip-hop canon from great composers such as 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, and Lil’Wayne and reverse-remixes/revision/re-contextualize/deconstruct and strip them down to their melodic, harmonic and rhythmic core through the use of the piano thus “Pianist Envy” is born. So let’s hope that every Canadian Olympic athlete gets hold of this mixtape for some inspiration to finally reach for the gold. But till then let’s watch as UHMERICA rubs it in all them Canuck’s faces.

Also if Gonzales is ever performing in a town near you – GO. It is a life changing experience, tomorrow night will be my third time seeing him and I cannot wait.

    Does the chord progession of the “Many Men” part (specifically the chorus) sound familiar to anyone? I want to say maybe some Rjd2 production from something? It’s killing me…
