There were a lot of The Black Album remix projects that dropped after the Jay Z acapellas for the LP were made available to the world, most notably Danger Mouse’s The Grey Album, which featured all beats constructed using samples from The Beatles’ The White Album (great concept). But in my humble opinion, DJ Lt. Dan put out the best The Black Album remix project. On The Black Remixes: Back to Basics, Lt. Dan (who also has one of the illest DJ drops ever, sampling Forrest Gump’s voice), put together what he billed on the cover as “a thematic prequel to Reasonable Doubt.” It aligned itself with the premise of the album by matching up Hov’s vocals with classic early ’90s beats. And as far as blends go, these shits are fire. We’ve all heard DJs sound wack trying to do blends, whether the vocals are off-beat, or the pairing of the vocals and instrumentals just don’t make sense. But that’s not the case here, at all.
This week’s #WuWednesdays drop was a RZA x Nas mash-up of “The Set Up.”

The legendary DJ Doo Wop is prepping an as yet unnamed blend tape for release sometime next week.
“Next week i’m smashing the game with this Blend mixtape…..Biggie, Jay Z & Nas rhyming over nothing but 80′s music……stay tuned children!”
This blend is cool, not really anything special, but nonetheless, Doo Wop is one of the only DJ’s alive who can announce a project like this in 2011 and make me give a shit.
Spotted: 238Beats. Also, be sure to hit the jump for the latest Doo Wop and The Bounce Squad mixtape, It’s Always Sunny in New York City.
