Moe Green - "Swim Great (Frank Ocean Remix)"

With the Lion Heart EP nearing completion and the full length LP To Whom It May Concern slotted for release later this year, to say the Vallejo, CA representative Moe Green is keeping busy is an understatement. More fittingly, Green is swimming in a sea of ambition trying to keep his head above water. Hence the reason the young emcee felt the urge to remix “Swim Good,” a song from Frank Ocean’s recently released Nostalgia, Ultra album. “Man, the original was so powerful because to me it sounded like he was facing some problems that he wasn’t ready to handle” say’s Green on why he picked the track to remix. “I been through that and am still in that position in life.”

Flipping the track, Moe keeps the original beat and chorus in tact for "Swim Great," crafting his own similarly-themed and introspective verses, matching Ocean's turbulent crooning in an ode to endurance for those in need of encouragement.
