First Listen: Thankfully, Someone Mashed Up Lana Del Rey And Jay-Z For ‘Hello’


Jay-Z’s American Gangster album is, without a doubt, a classic and I would, like, make out with my copy of it every day if that were at all socially acceptable. For that reason, I was wary of a mash-up of any sort, but how can I say no to Lana Del Rey? After hearing her with A$AP Rocky earlier this summer, I fell in love with the sound of her voice on a hip-hop track. The Miami production duo Urban Noize are the geniuses who selected one of my absolute fave American Gangster tracks, Say Hello, laced it with Lana’s vocals, and voila! Hello, my new favorite mash-up, was born. Between this and that Nas and Amy Winehouse collab, I think I’ve found the soundtrack to my day. Take a listen and tell me if you likey!
