Jay-Z Construction Set

After downloading 2 more torrents of Jay-Z remixes this morning, i decided to visit the artists' links to see WTF the deal is. There is actually a site devoted solely to remixing Jay-Z's Black Album. I still think that the Grey Album is the best so far (Beatles - White Album mash up), but I'm eager to find something better. I've just started listening to the Weezer mash-up and the Metallica and Pavement are downloading now. The funny part is that I never cared all that much for the original Black album.

[Update]: the Metallica one is a horrible piece of garbage, the cadences of the songs barely match up. I don't understand why it keeps showing up on suprnova. The Weezer one is decent, the cadences and moods of each song seem to mostly match up well. The LO2 (Blackfish) is OK, it's better than the Metallica one at least. The Pavement one is probably my second favorite overall (to the Grey Album), it might be because I read the dude's site who did it - he is a University Music Professor working on his PhD.

LO2 Thanks for the semi-compliment (no sarcasm). I did the Blackfish album just for fun, but I think it came out OK.
travis FWIW dude, I'm sure it's better than anything I could do. What did you use as your source(s) aside from the black album?
LO2 I'm in a fun, ridiculous Hip-Hop group called FunkaFeltaFish, and I used the beats from the songs on our upcoming album (tweaked quite a bit). Jay-Z + FFF = Blackfish.
