Yo, This DJ Alexei Drake x The Fugees Mash-Up Mixtape is Pretty Ill (Listen & Download)Posted by Nathan S. on 03/31/11 | Filed under Downloads, Mixtapes, Drake, DJ Alexei, The Fugees
(Poor Pras, was there really any question he'd be the one to get bumped?)
At their worst mash-ups are shallow attempts to get attention that tarnish not one but two dope original records. But at their best, mash-ups can create brand new masterpieces, and while I'm obviously hyperbolizing a bit, I have to give props to RefinedHype regular DJ Alexei for this Drake x The Fugees mash-up mixtape of "The Score".
I'm sure the heads of some purists just exploded ready that last sentence. Relax. No one's saying that Drizzy can touch a classic like "The Score", but adding a young voice to an album that's now well over a decade old gives it a new life, but he throws in Andre 3K, Busta Rhymes, Mos Def, Q-Tip and others. For those who haven't already freaked the f**k out, trust me, it's ill.
Download link and mixtape preview are underneath the tracklist:
