This isn’t a review as much as it is a heads-up pointing folks in the direction of a great mash up / mixtape. “Viva La Hova” presented by Terry Urban & Mick Boogie is a blending of Jay-Z and Coldplay songs. This is probably the most well executed mash up I’ve heard, as far as mixing rap with other forms of popular music goes. The producers who chopped up & sampled these songs deserve a lot of credit. The tape has a consistent vibe throughout, unlike so many other mash ups that seem to just paste together vocals and beats that don’t match. This mixtape makes me appreciate the Jay / Coldplay collaboration “Beach Chair;” it shows how well the artists’ sounds blend together. Hopefully there are more official collabs in the future, but if there aren’t, this a more than adequate substitute.
