So you have to all the way back to May 2007 to trace my obsession with The Hood Internet and in particular their remixes of R. Kelly songs.
Over the past couple of years, I’ve posted many links to HoodInternet Mash-ups and Mixtapes. And while these guys always surprise me at how well they can mash-up the latest hip-hop hits with classic or obscure indie mixes. One of the artists they excel at mashing-up is the ever creepy R. “I may have slept with an under-aged minor and I can’t get out of the closet without my gun” Kelly.
So for your summer music enjoyment, I have compiled every R. Kelly mash-up by the HoodInternet in one single page. Enjoy.
This is the song that started my obsession and three years later, it still stands the test of time. This song easily sits in the top 25 songs of all time for me and I have a feeling it always will.
Besides the slightly uncomfortable racist tones of the original song, this is easily the second best and most notoriously catchy of the R. Kelly mash-ups.
This was banned in 14 states because it was so awesome it caused too many babies to be born… Insta childbirthin’….
Okay, I made that part up, but it’s a great track which rivals the Shoreline track.
What’s better than Egg Nog? Creeping the shit out of your significant other with a whimsy Christmas song of R. Kelly and Sally Shapiro about sex chocolate.
What would a set of R. Kelly mash-ups be without a remix of Ignition? It would be incomplete and not nearly as awesome as this remix. Added Bonus Points for the original South Park imagery mash-up.
Of all the mash-ups, this fusion of R.Kelly’s Trapped in The Closet part 12421 and the Honeydrips is the most prog-rock of them all. I think if you listen too closely, you might actually believe that R. Kelly’s hip-hop opera was real… either that or it’s going to haunt your nightmare for days.
Needless to say it’s a solid track and rivals their Radiohead or Genesis themed mash-ups.
The Hipster kids like Baths… We’ll I’m not entirely sure they like personal hygine per-say, but the seem to like Baths the band. So if you want to give Baths a try, the band not the cleaning product, then this is a good track to start with.
A pretty decent song, which closes out the HoodInternet Mixtape volume 3. A little slower than most, but extremely solid.
One of two rejected tracks featuring the R. Kelly, but this one kinda builds on the Broken Social Scene vibe from the Shoreline track.
Anyways, so that’s that. I hope you love these tracks as much as I have over the past few years.
Major shout outs go to The HoodInternet for great music and for making it available for download. If I had the time and the talent, I’d take a run at mashing-up tracks… But it might be better for me to just stick with web design for the moment. And Mr. Arnott, for secretly encouraging a mutual love for R.Kelly’s horrible music.
