Here’s a fresh project a dude by the name of Adrian Champion. He’s taken The White Stripes instrumentals and samples and sprinkled it with acapellas from some of your favorite hip-hop artist. What resulted is a mixtape with 13 tracks of well polished mixes. The closest thing that pops to mind is the Danger Mouse Grey album, but this one is slightly different as it isn’t fusing two albums.
Here’s a word from Adrian Champion:
I started digging through my collection and fitting all the pieces together. My goal was to use only samples from The White Stripes and a cappellas from classic songs and my favorite emcees. And of course, I had to rap on one of the tracks myself, with my man Brian Jacobs on the hook.
So there it is, hip-hop fans, meet The White Stripes.
Fans of The White Stripes, meet hip-hop. — Adrian Champion
