ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Notorious B.I.G. (RIP!) + Jimi Hendrix (RIP!) = This zip file of MP3s (alternate link here) from DJ Doc Rok. (thanks Matthew R. Rose).
Mirror? The official link is getting _hammered_.
any mirror sites? I think the server may not like me.
I’ll seed it for a while if there is a .zip somewhere I can turn into a .torrent
Hendrix was remixed in the 90′s by the DJ production team known as The Beautiful People. They had a whole map of the sample origins on their CD booklet. I remember it as a very danceable and respectful album. I’ve since lost it.
the doc roc link is his myspace you can get it easy from there
Why doesn’t Jimi get an R.I.P.? He died nearly as young, and equally tragically/idiotically . . .
URL for the album (found on myspace, yay BMAN) is http://www.sendspace.com/pro/dl/bttikg

all i can say is i like B.I.G., i like jimi, but that cocaine mix is t3h crapstar.
why would anyone want to listen to one riff for 5 minutes straight? didn’t vanilla ice already cover that ground?
Hmm. Listened to this mix, and the whole thing just sounds very jejune and uninspired. Disappointing, really.
Isn’t the song labeled Cocaine actually Jimi’s cover of Sunshine of Your Love by Cream?
did Paul Pope design that cover?
Is it just me, or does the artwork look like Al Sharpton if he started pimpin’?
I also recommend my friend’s “Tha Killa Beez Experience” for any Wu-Tang fans. Give his Hey Joe mix a listen, it’s definitely one of my faves.
I agree with Cycle23. I love each artist, and love the way they mix together, but the mixer could have done a *much* better job of showcasing Jimi.
My $.02 is there’s a real appreciation here for Biggie, most of his best songs are here, but not much for Jimi. All the Jimi songs are really obvious, and there’s rarely more than a bar repeated over and over.
That’s not to say I don’t like this, it’s great. But could be greater.
While I have respect for this DJ as a big booty fan/DJ myself, Cocaine is actually a song by J.J. Cale released in 1976 (6 years after Jimi Hendrix’s death).
