In an unexpected move, Ronnie King, the respected producer and keyboard player who is heard on dozens of hit records, including some of the late Tupac Shakur’s biggest tracks, and who is also heard on the new Offspring single, “Hit It,” has instigated his first move in response to his quickly developing Punks-N-Thugs movement. King announced today that Rapper Big Syke from Tupac Shakur’s first rap group, the Outlaw Immortalz, and from his group Thug Life, will be rapping on a hiphop remix of The Offspring’s new single, “Hit It.” Says King, “The Offspring is totally behind this. They support this one hundred percent.”

Thug life meets punk on this much-anticipated remix. King says the combination of the Offspring with Big Syke on the remake will be a double threat, with the mixing up of the two musical camps.

Syke has recorded collaborations with other artists, with the best known result being “How Long Will They Mourn Me,” a track featuring Syke and Tupac Shakur, which appeared on Shakur’s All Eyez On Me. The song later appeared on Shakur’s posthumous Greatest Hits disc. Big Syke was part of the Outlaw Immortalz when they first surfaced on Shakur’s multi-platinum selling album, All Eyez On Me.

The original version of the song “Hit It” is exploding at radio and on national charts. It is the first single from the Offspring’s new album, Splinter.

King maintains that Pac had expressed to him on numerous occasions that he wanted to record a duo with Alanis Morrisette. Shakur’s life, of course, would end before there was a chance for that to happen. “It’s all music,” says King. “If you can’t deal with it, get over it.”
