Jay-Z x Radiohead: No Karma

This track is a mashup off of the Jaydiohead project released earlier this year by Max Tannone, a DJ and producer out of NYC, and is just one of the many gems that he created. It samples Jay-Z’s “No Hook” from American Gangster and Radiohead’s “Karma Police” from OK Computer. A fellow Not Some Kid reader told me about this project last week, and, after listening to it all the way through, I thought it was definitely worth a post. Enjoy!

Ryan Leslie: The Way You Move Girl (RMX)

As a fan of Nas, Pharrell, and Ryan Leslie, when I saw that somebody made a blend featuring all three of them on an uptempo beat, I had to give it a listen. Seamlessly blending Pharrell’s verse from “That Girl” and Nas’ verse from “Hey Nas” with the original beat and lyrics from Ryan Leslie’s “The Way You Move Girl,” this track has a fun vibe to it.

Wild Young Heartbreaks (Mashup)

I didn’t know what to expect out of this project, but, as a fan of Kanye’s 808s and Heartbreaks, I had to give this mashup a listen. Taking some of the best beats from Kanye’s Heartbreak album and mixing them with vocals from the most recent album by The Noisettes, Mick Boogie and Terry Urban created this remix project that has a very smooth and unique sound to it.
