The Notorious XX

The Notorioius XX

If you’re a fan of mashups you might dig this new mixtape by Wait What that I found over on Seizure Chicken.  It’s worth checking out for the randomness of the pairing alone.  The Notorious B.I.G. is probably the most mashed up artist of all time, but I’ve never heard him mixed with a new artist like The xx before.  If you’e not familiar, they’re pretty hot right now, and you may have heard their music in television commercials, like VISA’s speed skating spot from the Olympics, or on Grey’s Anatomy (my girlfriend watches it, shut up).  You can hear the first track below, a mashup of “Dead Wrong” and the “Intro” track from The xx’s 2009 debut album XX, and if you’re still interested you can download the whole mix for FREE here.
