2000s mixburst #9: dippin' stuntin' turnin' brushin'

more freestyle mixin. actually this was initially supposed to be a more dancehall-inflected "riddim" mix, but it felt better to switch into hip-hop instead. (maybe that'll happen later, though i really wish i knew more about dancehall to do it right. more like crossover pop with a vague dancehall groove.) wayne gets his ≤15 min. (yeah, there'll probably be more later, but it seemed right to give him a chunk here.) and i have some fun with probably the coolest mixing technique there is, pitting 70s-80s bpm hip-hop against 140s-160s bpm electro, for that half-time/double-time wooziness. except outkast flip it by rapping at 150 bpm... ooh, ice cold. of course i had to let "b.o.b." play out in full, so it got kinda long.

#9: 150-80 bpm (this is bigger than lil wayne) [23:50]
