Louis Jordan meets Primo

Verve Records, the monolithic jazz label that's always ready to repurpose their back catalog for the dance floor, has expanded it's ongoing "Verve Remixed" series into the video game realm. The music group has teamed up with Rockstar Games to release the soundtrack for the upcoming video game, "L.A. Noire."

The six-track EP features "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens," the classic cut from Arkansas' own Louis Jordan, getting the remix treatment from DJ Premier. We suspect you already know, but Primo is the living half of hip-hop greats Gang Starr and, it wouldn't be hard to argue, the greatest hip-hop producer ever.

That sound you hear is Stephen Koch ripping his hair out in handfuls.
