A Milli Of The Near Future Album Art


A Milli Of The Near Future

Here is a mashup of Li’l Wayne – A Milli and Klaxons – It’s Not Over Yet. This is a good example of playing a naturally slow a capella at double speed with a song at regular speed. In most cases the rhythm of the a capella won’t match, since slower a capellas are usually performed loosely with more breathing room. Leave it to Weezy (the best rapper alive?) to hold it down on tracks he has never heard before. The Klaxons’ song is actually a cover of a song by Grace. I decided to title it after the Klaxons’ album, Myths Of The Near Future, since it seemed to work better than most permutations of A Milli and It’s Not Over Yet. Try them yourself and you’ll see what I mean. (It’s Not A Milli Yet? WEAK!) Bon appétit.

    Great mashup. Very well put together – there’s some nice fine detail in the construction. I like that you let the klaxons sing a bit. A fine example of the mashup craft. Also Weezy is the s***.

    Also the picture’s sweet – I like that we’re getting more visuals on the site lately.

    this one is pretty hard… this is when the dancing starts to turn serious.

    great party song, there is no relief from the hard beatz. one must dance.

    Agree with the others, I like the mashing most when the singers go back and forth with one another, just throwing the a capella on an instrumental track doesn’t do so much for me.

    When the chorus comes in, the whole thing just takes off into the danceosphere, the release from the tension the rap builds…
