In Things That Needed To Happen news… the prolific San Francisco mashup-crafter Wait What has brought the seamless talents you probably heard him exhibit on Notorious XX to Drake’s Take Care title track, blending it together with the song it samples and interpolates, Gil Scott Heron and Jamie XX’s collaborative “I’ll Take Care of You.” 

Wait What keeps Drake’s verses intact, replacing Rihanna’s hook section with Heron’s vocals. “Take Care Of U” doesn’t stray too far from the original – it sounds like Wait What spliced in Drake’s sections where appropriate – but it’s definitely worth a listen, if only to hear what could’ve been the end result if Drake couldn’t secure a verse from Rihanna. Wait What releases a free mashup every Wednesday on his soundcloud if you like his work here. Hit the download button if you want to take this with you.
