Starting right about when Girl Talk was flooding the Internet with seemingly infinite mashups, The Hood Internet (comprised of ABX and STV SLV) out of Chicago, Illinois, started a small project where they would mashup hip-hop with popular indie rock releases. Well seven FREE mixtapes later, the group is still going strong. With the release of Growing Pains/Blurred Lines mashup the other day, the guys have once again have the spotlight on them (the Internet spotlight that is). I decided to compile five songs you need to hear from these guys. This was extremely difficult. They have so many songs, but some mashups just work better than others.
Here ya go.
1. Broken Social Scene vs. R.Kelly- I’m a Flirt (Shoreline)
2. R. Kelly vs. Jens Lenkmen- If I Could Rock (It Would Feel Like This)
3. Ghostface Killah vs. Beirut- Save Me Concubine
4. Bon Iver vs. Miguel- Adornocene
5. 2 Chainz vs. STRFKR- While I’m Different
