So you may or may not know this, but Jay-Z has released acapellas of all the tracks on his new album for us fine re-mixers to play with. So far there is a bunch of albums out there using them. A led zeplin based one, a godfather based one etc etc, so I figured I'd try jump on the bandwagon, with the only logical source for my samples..wham!.
So far I've done one track, mixes "Last Christmas" (hence why I decided to release it now) with the track "American Gangster". I'm not sure if I will go though with the whole album though...it would be nice, especially since hiphopdx.com is hosting a contest for remixes.
