DOWNLOAD: Fugazi + Wu-Tang Clan = The WUGAZI Mixtape
By Quinn S.
Plenty of artists/bands have been mashed up into one track before by plenty of DJs -- Girl Talk being the most prominent example of the past few years. And even though it seems like almost any two disparate sounds can find some way to unite harmoniously, I don't think anyone would have ever really thought that Wu-Tang Clan and Fugazi (!) would be a match made in heaven.
A few weeks back, a track entitled "Sleep Rules Everything Around Me" was released by Wugazi, featuring a mix of Wu-Tang's “C.R.E.A.M.” and Fugazi’s “I’m So Tired." I saw it popping up across the web, but was disappointed to see it was just a short 3:19 track, as opposed to a full album. Well, yesterday, Wugazi released their 13 Chambers mixtape for free download. Hear and download it below. This is something you must hear.
Wugazi is the creation of Minneapolis producers Cecil Otter (a member of the Doomtree hip-hop collective) and Swiss Andy.
