Hit-Boy may no longer be a part of the G.O.O.D. Music fold, but that didn’t stop him from utilizing Kanye West’s “New Slaves” for his own purposes. With that, we receive a remix, titled “New Chains”, that is a bit different both sonically and topic-wise from his former boss’ Yeezus standout.
The track comes with an accompanying visual treatment that features Hit-Boy rhyming while shackled, but albeit beautiful women get equal face time. Off scenes show dated footage of Black men working in a chain gang for emphasis. Check out the treatment for “New Chains” below.
