Jimi Hendrix vs Wu-Tang...The History of Hip Hop and a Free Tune From Noah D/Roommate





Yes, this did happen, and yes, it is awesome. I just bought the mp3's last night, took a listen, and have no regrets spending the ten dollars. Buy it here or just stream it here. Personally, I haven't found a mash-up album I've liked since Dangermouse's "Grey Album" (a mash-up of Jay-Z's 'Black Album' and The Beatles 'White Album'), but this is one of the rawest mixtapes I've heard all year. Wu and Jimi were just meant to be together I guess. Here's a few samples for you:












A while back, the guys at The Rub did a bunch of mixes, showcasing the best Hip Hop tracks from each year that Hip Hop has been around (1979-2010). Some personal favorites of mine are 1989, 1992, 1998, 2002, and for the clubs 2005/2006








And since I haven't really done this for a while...here's a free tune from Noah D and Roommate, on the more Reggae type vibes.

Also, last night was my University Orientation. It was quite weird, since I'm only 22, yet still technically a mature student...so the orientation really wasn't geared towards me. It was more about how to connect with the younger generation. And while the kids in their first years all all 5 years younger than me (still a lot different), I'm not THAT disconnected with them.

  2. On this note, check out the Notorious BIG & Frank Sinatra mash ups, that album is sick. Can't remember what it's called though.

  18. I was really excited about the Jimi vs Wu Tang videos, but they didn't meet my expectations. I just haven't gotten into Wu Tang for some reason. :(

    I'm really liking this last song though! :D I'm not usually big on reggae but every once in a while it's AWESOME :D Thanks for sharing, yay! :D

    Have fun in school! ^_~
