ursa: i’m ready. lay it on me.
ursa: the facts. c’mon.
SD: right, ummm…so… i finished up an old project thanks to help from you. you. aaaaaahhh lolz. thanks for the arty art, boo boo.
ursa: donmenshnit. what were we working on then?
SD: right so summer 2011, me and a comedian friend of mine, Drew MC , thought it would be funny to make an album of songs, which would start as spoken word, rap covers of songs written for films. generally title tracks and one rule was NO AWARD WINNERS ALLOWED.
ursa: is this a mixtape…izle?
SD: not exactly.
ursa: why suh, is suh it, not uh mix-uh tape-uh?
SD: i don’t google these definitions, so people may argue with me butt fuck em. a mixtape is generally a collection of tracks with lyrics (often improvised) that are performed and recorded on an already existing instrumental generally not created by the performing arist, but sometimes presented as a remix.
ursa: can you give me an example
SD: SHUT UP!
SD: no. i don’t really collect music so i would never be able to tell you. i just talk people and they play their music all the time so that’s one way of keeping things interesting. whateva! what we’re doing here is really just covers on remixes (although i would say covers really benefit when approached like a remix, i already know how the original artist plays it thanks)
ursa: you are being mean today.
SD: and you’re talking like a five year old. were you mind controlled when you were a kid or something?
ursa: egh, maybe.
SD: better… >: | anywho the tracks we ended up making before drew stopped calling me were:
Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks – “City of Crime” – Dragnet
Partners in Kryme – “Turtle Power” – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
MC Hammer – “Addams Groove” – The Addams Family
others on the list were:
Queen – “Princes of the Universe” – Highlander
Will Smith – “Wild Wild West” – Wild Wild West
The Fat Boys – “Are You Ready Freddy” – A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master
i dunno the list was long. me and drew actually made another video rap track called hot in the club like a year later or whatever.
ursa: but that’s not what we’re talking about right now.
SD: ahahaa k.
