The Hood Internet, "The Mixtape Volume Four"'
I've been meaning to put this up for about a month now-- sorry for the delay. This is a pretty dope mashup compilation-- no tricks, just clever simplicity. The Hood Internet duo distinguishes themselves from other mashup artists in that their mixes are pretty much one acapella over one instrumental. Mashups are typically an orgy of chopped samples that get repetitive if looped for too long. However, Hood Internet have developed a winning formula, where they can sustain high energy with very few samples in a given song. This allows the songs blend into each other seamlessly, which is far more difficult to accomplish if you are Girl Talk or Easter Egg. Each song flows perfectly into the next, so you don't really realize when one song ends and the next begins. It's like listening to one really long song. As a result, you are bobbing your head nonstop for one hour. Check out a couple cuts below then download at your leisure.
