You wouldn't think that the music from one of the most beloved games of the Super Nintendo era would mesh so well with the rhymes of an iconic rapper, but this amazing Chrono Trigger/Jay-Z mashup shows that anything in music is possible.

The slice of Chrono Trigger comes from the low key world map theme from the game entitled the 'wind theme,' by composer Yasunori Mitsuda. Jay-Z's contribution to the mashup comes from his song 'Ignorant Scene.'

The Jay-Z mashup comes from 2 Mello's new release called 'Chrono Jigga,' which is available for download from SoundCloud.

It bears repeating, who would have thought that a soft orchestral theme from a mid-nineties role-playing-game would mix so well with the foul mouthed rhymes of Jay-Z? Mix well it certainly does, and is well worth checking for vintage gamers and rap fans alike. Stats for 16-Bit Rap Mashups Trending: Older & Chilly
