Lupe, We Need You For This Monster Mashup Mix

If any other Dark Side of the Moon tracks have already been lifted by a rapper or two, please let me know. I couldn’t uncover any myself, now was I able to think of others. If my memory serves me correct and Pink Floyd’s notorious album remains untouched by hip-hop, the rest of this post may spark an online petition to change that, with the quickness. Allow me to post a few of my favorite Dark Side selections, ones I know could be the backdrops to some next-level spitting.

“Money” (If this proposed mashup had a single of some kind, this instrumental would be the ideal choice)

“Speak to Me/Breathe”

    NO one leave this classic joint alone

    Haha, funny that you would mention this, considering that my bro plans to go in over “Great Gig in the Sky”

    He was the on to put me up on Floyd and now they’re my favourite band EVER.

    To answer your question, if that Lupe mash is anything to go off of, he could potentially pull it off.

    Wyclef covered the title track “wish you were here”. Although it wasn’t on The Dark Side of the Moon it is a Pink Floyd song.

    That would work, but even as a Lu fan, I can think of a NUMBER of his works that would work for this other than “Tilted”. I would like to hear this with “The Emperor’s Soundtrack”, “Hurt Me Soul”, or just a brand new track. And throw Raheem DeVaughn on the hook for good measure.

    Ahh dayum, somebody around the XXL office needs to pull some strings to make a collabo like that happen. lol

    By the way, PLEASE keep these kinda drops coming. It’s freshing to see this kinda of thoughtfulness in a blog here. After yesterday’s drop, I had to go sample “Angela” (The Taxi theme) and wrote a verse over it I was so inspired. lol

    If I had to name 1 MC that could do such a mash up justice would be Talib.

    I agree completely. I’ve been looking for some time now for some Beatles beats and Pink Floyd sampled beats. I know the clearance for either would be ridiculous, if not out of the question, but I wouldn’t be looking to make money with the project. I’d be making them for myself

    dead prez used the intro to ‘Money’ (just the cash register sound effect) for Stimulus Plan, and sped it up a bit. Didn’t touch the actual track though. I flipped a beat using ‘Another Brick in the Wall’ (I know, different album) a while back, and it came out fresh.

    this kid an0maly did a track awhile back. check it out

    Geto boys used “money” in “let a ho be a ho.”

  • Razilla
