Sweet Child o' Juelz

Yeah, so the Asian-looking kid from Linkin Park has a solo (cough) hip-hop record under the name Fort Minor. He also got famous masher-up-er Jay-Z to co-sign the project as "executive producer." Then to set it up he got Eminem's pal Green Lantern to do the mixtape.

So, like, ugh, right? Your skin is crawling. But what if we told you parts of it . . . aren't . . . bad?

Before you laugh, let's throw some hypotheticals out there: JUELZ SANTANA FREESTYLING OVER GNR'S "SWEET CHILD O MINE"? Nope, nope, it's not a fantasy: we're listening to that shit right now. Which is worth the price of admission on it's own -- hell, it might even be worth the five years of annoying pop-rapmetal those Linkin Park chooches put us through. Classic-rock breaks are dug out in spades. Liberties are taken with the Doors and Rush and Zeppelin's "The Ocean." Styles of Beyond wrecks Hendrix's "Hey Joe" like he just spent six weeks at Edan's psych-rap band camp. Not mad at the chopped-up Bloc Party beat, neither.

LISTEN: Ryu, Juelz, Celph Titled, "S.C.O.M." (left-click mp3 links here and here)
LISTEN: Fort Minor feat. Ghostface & Lupe Fiasco, "Spray Paint" (mp3, via Spine Magazine)
