A lot of mash-up albums don't work. Two years ago, every hipster DJ seemed to have a mash-up disc at the ready to help promote their name--and only a small number of those were worth a damn.
But a new mash-up came out last week that's definitely something worth checking out. It's called The Green Album, you can download it here, and it's essentially a merger of Al "Grits" Green and your favorite rap artists.
I've been playing it this morning and it just makes you feel good start to finish. Consider it musical sweet tea on a hot summer day.
Here's the tracklist.
If you want to check out a quick Al Green mash-up while the Green Album is downloading, click here and listen to Almatic (Nas+Al). Ridiculous.
