A Night at the Hip-Hopera

Despite the fact that I only have a poxy 56kb dial-up connection here at home I downloaded all the tracks from The Kleptones A Night At The Hip-Hopera.  It took almost a full day but I’m not sorry and have been listening to it almost non-stop since I downloaded it.

This album is what is apparently known as a mashup and uses Queen’s music as a basis for a new creation consisting of a mix of new lyrics and samples.  I’m not really a great fan of hip-hop or remixes but this is really well done and I love it.  It seems that the main site has bandwidth problems and is no longer hosting the music tracks.  They do provide links to a few other sites that are making it available for download and I downloaded my copy from one of them, waxy.org.

If you don’t have this yet, you absolutely must check it out.
