Genius Mashup Combines Star Wars with Legendary Hip Hop Album
Producers Solar Slim & Richie Branson must have been really feeling the Force when creating this mashup album. The two producers took music from one of the most influential rappers of all time - The Notorious B.I.G. - and combined it with the music of Star Wars.
The result was Life After Death Star, a play off of Biggie Small's second and final album Life After Death (1997), which was released just days after the rapper's murder. The album shot up to No. 1 on the US charts and became one of the few hip hop albums to be certified Diamond after selling over 10 million copies.
The crazy thing is - the mashup works out incredibly well! Listen for yourself; you'll be taken back by how well the titles and subjects of Biggie's tracks align with the tone of each piece of Star Wars music.

The comment section of one blog featuring the album was too good not to share:
I'm a storyteller at heart, and music makes my world go round.
