Wrappin’ up this list of the best Jay-Z Mashups – & a few remixes – we move on to Jay-Z in a modern rock, electronic styling. What I really wanted to get out of these was to show Jay-Z in a different light // in a different genre. And that’s exactly what you’ll find. Would love to hear him do an electronic or jazz-based album (in muh dreams), but until then I’ll rely on these mashups.
KMT – Even Dirt Off Your Shoulder After All (Finley Quaye // Jay-Z Mashup)
“No chrome on the wheels, I’m a grownup for real[z].”
The chillest mashup out of the bunch that seems like it was made for Jay-Z. It was one of the first mashups I’ve found with him and still one of my favorites (top 2).
DOSVEC – Roc Changes (2Pac x Jay-Z Mashup)
DOSVEC really did it with this one. It’s just one altogether well put together piece.
“Mazel tov, it’s a celebration, bitches!”
Papeh Shreddah – Scar Tissue Problems ( Jay-Z // Red Hot Chili Peppers Mashup)
This one was a bitch to find. Caught it on Turntable.fm a few months back, but it’s nowhere on the net.. other than YouTube. Well, I managed to find a decent quality, but I wish I could’ve found a bit better one.
Jaydiohead – Wrong Prayer (Jay-Z x Radiohead Mashup)
Hip-Hop & Rock can fit so damn well sometimes. In Jaydiohead‘s “Wrong Prayer”, Radiohead’s guitar reps and trippy vibes make well with Jay-Z’s iconic voice.
Don Diablo – 99 Fences (Phoenix // Jay-Z Mashup)
I decided to include three “99 Problems” remixes because all of ’em are so damn different.. and so damn good. Each captures a different side of Jay, and Don Diablo emphasizes Jay-Z’s smooth flows with one elegant Phoenix beat.
Pretty Lights – Empire State of Mind (Jay-Z Remix)
It’s fuckin’ Pretty Lights – obviously, I’m gonna include his Jay-Z remix. That said, it’s a genius blend of Jay and Biggie – who would’ve that he could do so much more to an “Empire State of Mind”.
The Prodigy – 99 Problems (Jay-Z Remix)
“This is not a hoe in a sense of having a pussy, but a pussy havin’ no goddamn sense – tryin’ push me.”
I haven’t been listening to The Prodigy since waaayy back in the day, but damn does this shit hit. Such a dirty remix.
