I'm having a little mixtape throwback with this post today, taking you all the way back to 2007. Yes, this mixtape came out 4 years ago, but I only just stumbled across it the other day and thought it was so good that it was worth bringing to everyone's attention. The mixtape that I am speaking of is "Ludacris/J5: Re-Release Therapy" by DJ "J.J. Brown". As you may have guessed from the title, it's a mash-up (or as J.J. Brown likes to call it a "match-up") album taking Ludacris a cappella's from his Release Therapy record and mixing them over a range of Jackson 5 instrumentals and adlibs. I've mentioned plenty of times on the site that I'm not really a huge fan of mash-up albums as they always seem to be so hit and miss, but I can say without a doubt that this one is one of the best mash-up albums I've heard! There isn't a dud track on the tape and each track has been arranged so thoughtfully that there are no glaring mismatches and nothing seems out of place. It's a prefect combination really, the Jackson 5 instrumentals are timeless and Ludacris is one of the most underrated and technically proficient rappers ever, he has been ridiculously consistent acorss his whole career. If there's one mash-up album you lend your ears to this year definitely make it this one. I don't know how much more of a glowing endoresement I can give this mixtape. The one thing that puzzles me is even though I have listened to J.J. Brown's "Connect The Dots" album previoulsy I don't know how I slept on this mixtape up until now? Anyway check out a little taster below with the tracks and "Warning/To Know" and "Woozy/I Am Love", with artwork and download link after the jump.
