Notorious B.I.G. + The XX – Notorious XX

Posted on March 31, 2010 by


Although mash-ups usually fade from my iPod after a listen or two, I really love the XX and I really love Notorious B.I.G. so I could see this one having some stay power. Hit the jump for words from the DJ who mixed it and of course, tracklist and download link.

“the notorious xx began as an idea in my sister’s apartment, where I was trying to figure out what it would sound like hearing juicy over vcr, and since then expanded to include all 11 tracks of the xx’s debut album chopped, sliced, and mashed up with biggie’s vocals. I made it over the span of a few weeks in boston, williamstown, albany, chicago, aspen, denver, and san francisco, and then mastered over 10 days in zurich, zermatt, london, san francisco, dallas, baton rouge and new orleans.

without the help, ideas, and support of a lot of people, it wouldn’t have been possible. thank you to everyone who helped out, gave me feedback, and otherwise influenced this project — you were crucial in making this idea a reality, and I can’t thank you enough.

I had an awesome time making this album — from the music to the art to the video — and I hope you guys have as much fun listening to it as I did assembling it. feel free to connect via facebook, vote on hype machineget in touch, and most importantly, if you like it, share it with a friend — music was meant to be shared (or you could tweet about it, too).

thank you for listening to my project — I hope you enjoy it,
