Been diggin' some mashup albums lately. And why not? When they're done well, they produce some really fantastic rap music. List are the few mashup albums I've been digging, but I would love to find more. Rec's would be appreciated, Sputnik.
Pet Sounds: In The Key Of Dee
J Dilla and the classic "Pet Sounds". No rapping, purely instrumental. It's pretty awesome though.
The Pink Album
Jay-Z and The Flaming Lips. Really awesome stuff, and a lot better than "The Grey Album" in my opinion (if less intricate). "Dirt off Your Shoulders" is beautiful when mixed with "In The Morning of Magicians".
|3||Wick-It The Instigator|
The Brothers of Chico Dusty
"Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty" and "Brothers". Haven't heard either album before this. Needless to say, it made me track both down.
|4||Tom Caruana |
Enter The Magical Mystery Chambers
The Beatles and Wu-Tang mashed up. Somewhat disappointed by the fact that most of the songs are Beatles members solo songs and Wu-Tang members solo songs, but regardless, a lot of this is gorgeous.
Sufjan Stevens and a bunch of different rap artists. Not really a huge Stevens fan, but it's a pretty chill listen.

Anything by The Hood Internet
A Night At The Hip-Hopera by The Kleptones
Seriously, the Hood Internet. If Sputnik wasn't so GT obsessed they would be all over it
|Here, this is The Hood Internet mashing up Raekwon and Destroyer|
|Triple posting but hey, this is one of my favourites|
Weezy and James Blake:
|Pretty awesome stuff. I just started liking "Kaputt" a lot more, so this works for me. |
Also just found Jaydiohead. It's pretty neat, but I really wish there were more mashups that didn't include "The Black Album" though.
|Lil Wayne/James Blake track is pretty awesome too. I normally dislike Weezy, but his stoned vocals really work with the James Blake. |
|I need to check out 2|

It's revolver mashed track by track with modern artists
I fuck around with mashups sometimes. This isn't THAT good, but it's ok. Let me know what you think.
|Legion Of Doom - Incorparated (Even if I only listen to Hands Down Gandhi from it..)|
The Hood Internet's mash up of DMX and the xx is pretty decent, works surprisingly well!
