Long time in development, this was a joint project between 3 producers spread
far across the world; Unreal, based in the UK, Nick Crescendo, based in the
US, and Ghost, based in Sweden.
All the beats were made especially for these tracks - but these mixes go far
further than just the beats. We tried to approach this from the opposite
spectrum of the hiphop angle, with new-era styles of music. You'll find
arpeggiated synthesizers, movie samples, chopped world music clips, and even
cuts from previous Jay-Z tracks.
Cover art and other art created and owned by Unreal, including the sources used.
Even if you prefer the original album or love this, please feel free to spread
this online by blog, myspace, facebook, IM, or even burn discs - because
everyones tastes are different. We hope you enjoy what you hear, this was
constructed on a very professional level to deliver the best package we could
possibly give without biting our pockets too much. Support music made for fun
and creativity. We encourage you to let us know any thoughts on this on Myspace,
found on here and on each of the mp3's.
Thanks to Jay-Z and Roc-A-Fella Records LLC« for the acapellas. And well done
