The Gnotorious Gnarls Biggie

Saw this link initially on the XXL website. Was figuring it was a mashup, so I peeped the official website link. Thought that Cee-Lo/Ready To Die cover was fucking hilarious. Now, I'm not a big fan of this Gnarls Barkley LP, but I like this mashup. It's more in the vein of the Grey Album, where the Gnarls LP was more or less chopped up and the BIG lines were thrown over top. It works well, actually. Doesn't make me love Danger Mouse any more or less, but it's fun to hear Biggie's lines resurrected over non-Diddy beats.

Grab it before it's gone.

Need more info on this? Peep the
Sound Advice crew's blog post about this concoction. And enjoy. Pay homage to BIG, and try to give Cee-Lo a chance, I guess. Caps & Jones shits all over them, but you ain't heard that from me.

PS: This "Ten Feng Shui Commandments" track is the best thing on there.

PPS: You know, I've given this a night's rest... well... 13 hours to sleep on it. I don't think I like this as much as I like the idea that DM went from being on the outside looking in (cease & desist order and all) to now being on the inside looking out. I posted this up as a bulletin on my MySpace, and I have Gnarls Barkley on my "friends list" (I hate that term, I have more contacts than true friends on my MySpace...) they are down with an Atlantic subsidiary... will he be down with them cease and desist orders that are sure to come down on this project? I like standing up for mash-ups that challenge the mainstream profile... peep the Q-Unit and American Edit albums... in the name of Double Dee & Steinski, let the mash-ups go!
