Viva La Remaster

Perusing Mick Boogie's site the other day, I realized that I missed a major release last September.

Back when I was just a neophyte "music" blogger, one of my first posts was this little mash-up (apparently they hate this word) mixtape that Mick Boogie and Terry Urban had put out called Viva La Hova. For anyone not familiar with the project, it paired the music of some group named Cold Play with this rapper guy by the name of Jay-Z.

I happen to think it's one of the best mash-up original projects ever released, and I guess a few others thought the same. According to Boogie, “Terry and I were planning on re-releasing it in December anyways, just because everywhere we go, people ask us about it. After Jay-Z and Coldplay announced their big New Years Eve plans, including performing together integrating their songs…and about a million people emailed us…we decided to just drop the re-release now. Why wait?”

The new and improved version features two new songs and a removal of the DJ drops. If you never had the chance to experience the greatness that is Viva La Hova, here is your chance.

I also missed Prelude to the Throne, a mixtape homage to the upcoming collaborative album from Jay-Z and Kayne West.

Just for fun… a treat for the Kanye/Jay-Z fans. Some remixes/blends that we did previously, some rarities, some live audio, and of course, the hits. No, it’s not mixed, so delete whatever you don’t like. Yes, it’s a good listen, so enjoy it. I’m looking forward to their forthcoming “Watch The Throne” project.
