    The Forty Five has a great new oral history all about Decaydance Records. The part about Snakes on a Plane, specifically, brought back quite a few memories:

    Midtown had broken up so Gabe was trying to figure out what he was going to do next. He had a song called ‘Bring it’ he was working on that had a cool vibe. Sisky from Academy called and said, ‘There’s a movie called Snakes on a Plane that might be the worst movie of all time. We should try to get our song ‘Black Mamba’ in it’. A friend of mine was the music supervisor on the movie, so I called him and asked if we could get the song in. He said there weren’t going to be songs in the movie, only score, but I convinced him to let us do a soundtrack. We went to Gabe and told him he needed to add some parts to ‘Bring it’ to be about snakes on a plane. He wasn’t super happy with me at the time but he was a team player.

    Really interesting read. Travie's quotes are some of the best parts of this

    Be kind; everyone is on their own journey.

    Better than you, sorry

    ... and then Gabe had to one up the whole thing. Instead of just snakes he had to do Cobra. And then instead of planes homeboy went Starship.

    Enjoyed that too! Loved to see The Hush Sound mentioned again, overally quite a troubling, yet inspirational piece.
