The Hood Internet Releases New Mash-Up

The Hood Internet has paired up with some major names including Jidenna, Kendrick Lamar, Major Lazer and DJ Snake to create the new track “Classic Lean.” The electric energy of Major Lazer and DJ Snake’s popular “Lean On” is paired with Kendrick’s remix of Jidenna’s “Classic Man.” As Audio Aquarium puts it, “Hearing Kendrick rap over this type of production is pretty damn exciting.” The Hood Internet mash-ups are generally hit or miss and this track is a definite hit. Compared to another august release “Cha Cha Nearer (D.R.A.M. vs Jamie xx),” “Classic Lean” is more stylistically cohesive and easy to follow with electric hip-hop vibes that are reminiscent of Girl Talk. Impressively, Kendrick Lamar’s rapping is present throughout the entire track, showcasing the Chicago duo’s ability to mix separate melodies, all while keeping tempo with the rap lyrics, which remain steadily paced.

You could call me a dabbler when it comes to music. I find myself experimenting with anything from guitar to DJ-ing. Now, I'm writing about the only topic that never ceases to fascinate me. I may have been trained as a political journalist, but I'm a music enthusiast at heart.
