06 Oct Yeezer (Kanye x Weezer) is a Thing, Internet Still Rules
Well, the internet continues to reign supreme over us all…
Weezer has been paired with hip-hop before. Jay-Z was the first go round, with Jay-Zeezer’s The Black and Blue Album, but it couldn’t compete with The Grey Album by Danger Mouse. Could Yeezer be Weezer’s second shot at a proper hip-hop mash-up concept album? The band, most likely, doesn’t give a shit. But admit it, these things are pretty fun to listen to.
The album was made by Alex Hodowanec, of Ohio State University, who told MTV that the project all started with “Through The Hills,” a mash-up of Kanye’s “Through The Wire” and Weezer’s “Beverly Hills.” He explains: “Once that first song clicked, I thought, you might as well just go for nine more, right?”
