16-Bit Rap Mashups

Gamers and Rappers Alike Will Appreciate This Jay-Z Chrono Trigger Mashup

— January 28, 2013 — Naughty
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.
Trend Themes
1. Rap-gaming Mashups - The combination of video game music and rap songs presents an opportunity for unique and nostalgic entertainment experiences.
2. Creative Sampling - Utilizing music samples from different genres and eras can lead to innovative and surprising sounds in mashup creations.
3. Nostalgia-driven Music - Blending classic video game tunes with popular rap lyrics taps into the nostalgia of both gaming and music enthusiasts.
Industry Implications
1. Entertainment - The entertainment industry can explore collaborations between rappers and video game composers to create new and captivating musical content.
2. Music Production - Producers and musicians can experiment with combining different musical styles and genres to invent fresh mashup creations that resonate with diverse audiences.
3. Gaming - Video game developers can incorporate interactive music experiences that merge gaming and music, attracting a broader audience and enhancing player immersion.
