Hear Jay-Z Mashed Up With Passion Pit and The Beatles


When two Jay-Z mash-ups come in from two different sources on the same day, I take that as a sign that we need to post some Jay-Z mash-ups. At first I thought about separating these two to give each producer their own well deserved time in the spotlight, but then I figured that combining them would make twice as much sense, hopefully get each twice as many views, and ultimately cut the amount of work that I had to do in half. So naturally I went with what was easiest for me and put them together. Just kidding. I actually did this because it’s easier for you guys. Less pages to load, less things to click through, and we hate clicks too (don’t kill me Confusion), so it all works out in the end.

This first masher stacks Jay-Z and BeyoncĂ©’s mega hit “’03 Bonnie & Clyde” up against Passion Pit‘s new single “Take A Walk”. The song was mixed by wait what, and is the first single from his forthcoming mixtape out May 21st. Just as before, it will be a pay-what-you want album, with all proceeds going towards Dave Eggers’non-profit youth writing organization, 826 Valencia.

Now when you see Jigga’s name next to The Beatles, everybody immediately thinks “The Grey Album, Danger Mouse, been there and done that”. Yeah well, this shit is different. This mash-up by The Melker Project takes a rare Beatles’ accapella of “Because” and swirls it up with Jay’s “Say Hello” off the American Ganster album to create a new version that you’ve definitely never heard before. Give both of these fine remixes a listen and enjoy the weekend!

    Both are primo as fuck but I like the second one better.


  • IslandKid

    how can he use this as a single for his upcoming album, which he’s selling? isnt that illegal? selling songs vocals which arent his?

  • Confusion

    @IslandKid – It’s for a mixtape. Laws on this are blurry, but if different pieces of music are used and changed enough in concept to stand alone as a different piece of work, sometimes it’s legal. The fact that he’s probably going to offer it for free makes it even less likely that he’d get in any legal trouble. It’s just like any mash-up. Still a grey area.

  • IslandKid

    id understand the concept if he was giving it away for free(we’ve all seen those mixtapes e.g so far gone, no ceilings) but i thought the deal was that if they are distrubuted for free they are ok, but you can’t make a profit off other peoples work for which they havent licensed you to sell. weird, but im guessing since this guy is pretty unknown no one will care. i imagine if he blows up there will be lawsuits
