Hello and welcome to another edition of Nerdy Tunes Thursday! This week’s post is in just in time for the big event 8 days from today. So what happens when you take John Williams’ score and mash it up with one of the greatest hip hop classic albums of all time? Life After Death Star.
The product of iconic the Star Wars score intercalated with the lyrical force powers of one Christopher Wallace, aka The Notorious B.I.G. is exactly what I need to catalyze the hype for next friday’s premiere. The project was developed by nerdcore rapper Richie Branson and producer Solar Slim, collectively known as the Otaku Gang, and it fits right in alongside Danger Mouse’s The Grey Album as one of the most imaginative remix albums to date. The original score is retooled to fit with the flow of the raps, and if you ever wondered what the cantina theme overlaid with the lyrics from “Party and Bullshit”, well, you’ve been looking in Alderaan places.
Give it a listen below and if you’d like to download the album, you can do so here!
