A couple weeks ago, I tweeted that I was really digging some new music my brother gave me after he got back from Lollapalooza, including The XX@scarlettlion clued me in that there was a mash-up of The XX and Notorious B.I.G. by somebody who goes by, get this, ‘Wait What.’

The Notorious XX by Wait What

This reviewer explains that

Wait What mashed up Biggie with every song on the xx’s debut album. Charlie, the man behind Wait What, described the mashup album The Notorious xx on his site. I posted the bio below:

the notorious xx began as an idea in my sister’s apartment, where I was trying to figure out what it would sound like hearing juicy over vcr, and since then expanded to include all 11 tracks of the xx’s debut album chopped, sliced, and mashed up with biggie’s vocals. I made it over the span of a few weeks in boston, williamstown, albany, chicago, aspen, denver, and san francisco, and then mastered over 10 days in zurich, zermatt, london, san francisco, dallas, baton rouge and new orleans.’

What a trip! (For those of you who are not getting the connection, my blog, the one that you’re reading right now, is also called Wait… What).

So big shout out to Wait What and The Notorious XX. You can hear and download it here.

Listen and think of me and Charlie, randomly connected through the Interwebs all because of a Tweet. 🙂
