you make me like vans
My man DJ Never Forget sent me this new mashup from Eugene, Oregon's Hoop Dreams. We don't know much about this Hoop Dreams character, except that his influences include (and I quote) "YOU DAD! I learned it from watching you..." and that the above photo of him with the '92 Dream Team is funny. So, yeah, Hoop Dreams mashed the Knife's "You Make Me Like Charity" with one of the best hip-hop singles of the year, the Pack's "Vans." He shows quite a bit of restraint, which is nice, because the Knife's original is already great, and because the hook of "Vans" sounds really cool laced over the creepy beat.
