Fairly few mixtapes entertain, point out a musical trend, and ask interesting questions of their listeners at the same time. But, over at Uptown Almanac, Serg and DJ Hunnicutt have just posted a mixtape that does both of those. It's called "oooOOOoooOOOooo..." (The Mixtape), and it consists of rhymes from songs that use a sample of the Beastie Boys' "The New Style."
So where's the question? Well, see, the thing is more than 36 minutes long. That's a really long time to be listening to the Beastie Boys' go "ooooOOOoooOOo." A really long time. Long enough for the whole thing to be kind of a challenge to see how long you can listen. But it's kind of amazing how many songs use a sample of that song, and the mix sounds pretty good. Check it out after the jump.
I recently harnessed the power of the internets to make a mixtape with a friend. I sent him a bunch of rap songs that use a sample from the Beastie Boys' The New Style because that loop is dope as fuck and wanted a mix to exist. Fortunately he had the same idea which I came to find out via this amazing technology called twitter. I sent him a few songs I had in a playlist and he put it together over a few months. Then we put it on the internet because that's what you do with music in 2011.
Truth. Now, listen:
So, how long did you last?
