Artwork by The Hood Internet

Seriously.  He isn’t.  There are so many other cool kids out there, fusing genres, making something new from something borrowed and something blue.  While it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, I love the multiple layers that mash-up artists put together.  It requires so much vision…or probably more appropriately, a really great ear, and just knowing what kinds of beats, rhymes, and indie rhythms together.  The Hood Internet are one of my favourite production teams out there in the mash-up world.  You can find more of their amazing mix-tapes, mash-ups and remixes on their soundcloud page here.  But in the meantime, here are my top 3 Hood Internet tunes.
