First off, happy Monday. I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted a Mashup Monday, but I hope yall can forgive me. Now that that’s behind us, here’s our first mashup. It’s by our dude Ricky Cervantes and it got Drake, Krewlla, Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Eminem all on one track and it sounds amazing.
Second, bet you never thought you’d hear Kendrick and Katy Perry on the same track? Particularly not after meeting angry kid Kendrick on “Control.” Ah but alas, The White Panda wanted it to happen, so it did.
Third, Arjun sent me this little gem today, in perfect time for Mashup Monday. The Tutankhamun Brothers found a way to blend Kanye West and The Beatles in a way that sometimes (and frankly more times than I would have expected) actually sounds decent. Not quite Danger Mouse/The Grey Album status, but this is good stuff.
Highlight: What’s a Black Beatle
The Vaccines takes Katy Perry’s potentially record-tying song / viral video sensation “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” and injects some characteristic teenage angst in the same vain as the master of teenage angst Morrissey and his band The Smiths. In other, somewhat-related news, Katy Perry’s husband, Russell Brand, has a cat named Morrissey, named after his favorite singer. Go figure.
Fuck it, and if you’re really interested (because I just Google searched it), Katy Perry does indeed have a cat named Kitty Purry.
…The couple also got a kitten together named Krusty, combining the “K” from “Katy” with “Rusty”, Russell’s nickname. Fuck. I know too much about this.
Shout out to Pretty Much Amazing.

“Hot N Cold” – Los Colorados
Cover by this Ukrainian Polka band. Wow the song just got so much better!!! They could use a replacement at the tambourine though, he’s a little off beat sometimes. If this doesn’t make you bounce a little, something may potentially be wrong with you.
