I've never heard of xx but I love me some Biggie Smalls and this is pretty decent.

hey guys,

Blake, thanks so much for posting about this, and thanks to everyone for checking out my project -- I really appreciate it. AP.net was the first music blog I ever followed, starting way back in 2002 I think and reading about the TBS/BN/Rufio tour when I was in high school (and trying to buy a 'Booze and Adventure shirt from TBS's return show -- anyone around remember that?)

Anyway, seeing it get to where it is today has been awesome -- this site's provided me countless great recommendations (Northstar, The Format/fun., Gratitude, P.O.S.), and it's really dope to wake up and see that you guys posted about my project. Thanks to everyone for checking it out and giving it a shot -- really appreciate it. I've been around here long enough to know that people are passionate about their feelings towards music here, so do appreciate both sides of it.

Thanks for spreading the word, and it goes without saying, but awesome work on the site, Jason and everyone else -- it's been awesome to see it blow up over the years.

cheers,
Charlie (wait what)

Love this XX mashup but for those of you who liked this, a mixtape called Gratefully D.E.A.D. does the same thing except with the Grateful Dead. A little less dissonant and more upbeat than these XX mashes.

This sucks all of the energy out of the Biggie performances.

And Jesus I really wish Puff Daddy had never laid that verse down for "Mo Money Mo Problems", that has got to be one of the most boring-sounding verses I have ever heard. Dude just doesn't sound like he gives a shit at all.

The guy obviously doesn't have loads of money and he just did this as a fun project. For what it is, it definitely is fricking great.

Puffy's rhymes were always weak. He should have stayed behind the boards.

In terms of this project, Biggie needs a beat. It's an interesting contrast, but just totally devoid of the energy the original tracks had, and it's hard to get excited when there's almost no way to get into the rhymes and flow.

Every up-and-coming producer is just trying to do a Grey Album and make a name for themselves, but none of them come close to the original.
hood internet's mixtapes are the shit...i would argue many of their mashups end up being better than the original songs. as far as making a full album with two artists mashed up - i think that's extremely hard to do, and many times they have to try a bit too hard to do it and it doesn't work
