For those about to die, we salute you (and no, that's not a reference to the most overrated movie of the noughties).
* A plus D - Beethoven's Fifth Gold Digger (Kanye West vs. Beethoven vs. Walter Murphy)
Again, I start by nixing a mashup, and again, it's by A Plus D. Nothing mean meant by it, I'm sure. This is good fun, but in the long run becomes enervating due to the way it hampers Kanye's flow just ever so slightly.
* Au Pairs - Come Again
I can't remember where I happened upon this, but it was a revelation, after hunting for their "Playing with a Different Sex" album for three years. Menace and groove. Within weeks, I also found out that their entire recorded output had been anthologised just recently. Can't wait to hear it.
