In the tradition of DJ Dangermouse mixing Jay Z vs. The Beatles in a great album called "The Grey Album", Spinjunkies have mixed the Hov and the Dead in an album called "Jay Z's Dead". I'm listening to it right now, and it's actually really well done. It's sure to confuse any Deadhead.

Here is the track list:

1. SPINtro/ King Solomon's Marbles

2. Encore/ Friend of the Devil

3. 99 Problems/ Scarlet Begonias

4. Dirt off Your Shoulder/ Fire On the Mountain

5. December 4th/ Dark Star

6. What More Can I Say/ Shakedown Street

7. My 1st Song/ New Minglewood Blues

8. Lucifer/ Help On The Way

9. Change Clothes/ Slipknot

10. Interlude (PSA)/ Franklin's Tower

11. Allure/ St. Stephen

12. Justify My Thug/ Throwing Stones

13. Moment of Clarity/ Music Never Stopped

14. Threat/ High Time

Definitely worth the download!

ya, a lot of these Queen ones are really really well done

was hesitant to the concept at first originally but that faded really quick a couple of tracks in

thanks for postin the Jay Z/Dead mixes, some good fun stuff in there (haven't heard them all yet but the Dirt off Your Shoulder/Fire On the Mountain I got off on most so far)

'i love the 99 problems-scarlet!!!!'

So do I...............

I got introduced to this a while ago, so when Phish covered 99 Problems with JayZ, I figured they must have played Scarlet as the backing rythm for him. The sheer look at terror on DaveyBoy's face when I first played it for him was worth every ounce of sweat JayZ put into this project.

this is a great mix.. only one comment in comparison to what DJ Danger Mouse did with The Grey Album.. it would have been cooler I think if the Spinjunkies did what DJ Danger Mouse did and only use the Jay Z vocal tracks and not use any of the other music from the original Black Album and just use GD stuff for the music.. did that make any sense?

also.. this is funny.. I posted the link on a graphic design board that I frequent. All those guys on that board are "young and cool" if you know what I mean. This was one of the responses my post recieved:

" ha, that's such a bad idea.

the only possible people that would listen to it are fratboys."

man.. some people are so silly :)
