The Notorious Xx

Hey Shanty Folks! It has been a while, hasn't it? Congrats to Paul, by the by. HUGE step in a funky direction. We're all very proud of you.

So this is kind of an old release. It's a mashup (ugh, again?) making use of tracks from Title by The Xx as well as acapellas from various releases by Notorious B.I.G. The mashup was put together by Wait What. Specifically, Wait What may have put together the first track to simply demonstrate how easy it is to create a catchy mashup. It became super popular (and in my opinion, remains the coolest track) and he ended up developing the project and releasing it commercial distribution. Ironic squared. Gah, whatever.

Biggy's rights holders later popped up and demanded that he cease distribution of the project. Nevertheless, it has been available on Soundcloud for some time, and now also available on the Shanty!

Happy friday everyone.
