off topic big time.. but i must share it with you guys -
he took all the beats and samples out of the Beatles' white album, and all the Raps out of JayZ's black album, which ended up with this "Grey Album", the best Bastard-Pop piece i've ever heard.
get those 12 tracks via your favorite file sharing tool (soulseek, limewire.. whatever)
let me know what do you think...

EMI Orders Danger Mouse To Cease and Desist Distribution Of Grey Album
Rufuse to fuck with Mighty, Mickey, Modest

Cory D. Byrom reports:
DJ Danger Mouse's The Grey Album, which features vocal tracks from Jay-Z's The Black Album combined with chopped-and-clipped instrumentation from The Beatles (aka The White Album), may be one of the more interesting mash-ups we've heard lately, but that certainly doesn't mean it's going to be sitting on the shelves in your local Wal-Mart any time soon. In fact, it may not find its way back into any stores at all. The album was only released to a couple of independent stores to begin with, as Danger Mouse said from the beginning that it would be strictly a limited release, and held true to that by only pressing 3000 copies. But thanks to EMI, who apparently enjoys shitting in everyone's salad, they've been yanked.
If you managed to get your grabby paws on one, then consider yourself lucky. An EMI representative served the DJ with a cease-and-desist order demanding that he stop distribution of the CD at once. The stores that were carrying it were also instructed to remove it from their shelves. EMI (Capitol in the U.S.) you understand, controls the actual music of the Beatles; the publishing half is controlled by Sony Music/ATV Publishing, which is a joint undertaking between Sony and Michael F-ing Jackson. Seriously.
DJ Danger Mouse has complied with the demand, as he admittedly did not intend on the music getting all of this attention in the first place. No further legal action is expected, but if the RIAA isn't busy this week they may find a way to sue him. In the meantime, you may have to resort to eBay to find a copy. Or, if you're feeling dirty, file sharing remains an option. Just don't tell the RIAA we suggested it.
