Listen: Girl Talk stops borrowing and actually makes an original song

Pin it

Yes, you read that right. Gregg Gillis, better known as sampling-crazy DJ Girl Talk, is teaming up with Jim Jones. Jones is famous for his work with Dipset, and for his penchant for rhyming "sparkles" with "sparkles" (which I'm pretty sure is forbidden under the hip-hop bylaws, but Jones pulls it off). 

Together, the two created "Believe in Magic," a '70s-inspired track that only uses one sample, perhaps a record for Gillis. If you're not familiar, Girl Talk is best known for dance-party-starting mash-ups that contain long, recognizable samples of contemporary tracks. If you went to a liberal-arts school on the East Coast, chances are you do know Jim Jones and Girl Talk, In which case you'll be excited that Girl Talk created his own original song — and that Jim Jones is rapping on it. Regardless of which camp you fall in, check it out:

Here's Jim Jones to familiarize yourself (note the rhyming of "night" with "night"):
