Ladies and gents, hell has officially frozen over.

Why?

Because Bob Dylan is making a hip hop song.

Well, sorta…

After years of rejecting offers to remix his catalog, Dylan has agreed to let producer Mark Ronson craft a hip hop version of his 1966 song "Most Likely You'll Go Your Way (And I'll Go Mine)" off Blonde on Blonde.
 
“It’s the first time Bob Dylan has given anyone the original multi-tracks of his songs to do remixes," Ronson said recently. "I’m a huge Dylan fan, so it’s a great honor, along with the fact that he heard it and approved it, because, as you imagine, he’d be quite picky.”


The song is scheduled to debut on BBC's Radio 1 next week during DJ Zane Lowe's show.

"We hope the fans will see this as an addition to the canon, not a desecration," said Columbia Records' UK managing director Mike Smith. "It’s a new interpretation of Bob’s world and adds to the mystery. We all approached the remix with respect and awe.”

 “Interpretation of [one’s] world”? Is that what they’re calling a “travesty” these days?
