Clash of the Genres
Adds a different feel to both songs huh? Biggie's thug raps and The xx's lucid, soft sounds somehow get along so well. As powerful and personal "Juicy" is, the guitar riff in the background from The xx really contribute a discerning effort. For whatever reason, it all just...works.
Honestly though, what hasn't Biggie been remixed with? The likes of Frank Sinatra, Ratatat, and even Miley Cyrus (?!?! I find this just insulting).
Even though Weezy is locked up, his music is still being manipulated and refreshed.
(500) Days of Weezy mashes up the soundtrack album from (500) Days of Summer and Weezy's songs. Some work, some don't. I found it interesting though; it's a tough challenge!
