Notorious B.I.G. Vs. The xx – “A Juicy Intro (Ha Yes! Mashup)”

By Ryan J. / 07.26.11

In the ten minutes that it takes to write a post on a mash-up project, the internet subsequently shits 1,023 more on unsuspecting listeners. The better 95% are largely forgettable undertakings, while a few projects such as The Grey Album gain secure placement in your iPod’s most-played lists. However, a recent Wait What mash-up of Biggie’s “Juicy” and The xx’s “Intro” belongs in that revered 5%.

B.I.G.’s staple lyricism intricately meets the sparse instrumentals off the British group’s debut. The combination somehow makes the BK MC’s braggadocio more potent, injecting a fierce, understated guitar riff to buoy the bars. The hushed backdground “ooos” lurk, creating an ominous sensation on par with Notorious’ more skin-crawling tracks such as “Gimme The Loot” and “Warning.”

The mash-up isn’t necessarily on par with The xx’s most famous mixing member, but it’s safe to assume that Jamie wouldn’t have any qualms over the Biggie mash.
