Mixtape Challenge: How Long Can You Listen to the Beastie Boys Go "OOOOoOOOo?"

Posted By on Thu, Sep 15, 2011 at 5:43 PM


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.

The backstory:

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?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
