1. This is an amazing tune that uses samples from the already awesome Radiohead song “Paranoid Android” and and mixes them into Jay-Z’s “Dirt Off Your Shoulder”. Produced by Max Tannone. There are heaps of these available for free download from his website as instrumentals or with vocals. Other notably well crafted mashups are “No Karma” and “99 Anthems”.

  2. More free( and legal!) music from the hip hop world. Hoodie Allen is a rapper/songwriter from New York. He has two mixtapes that are definitely worth checking out. The first, Pep Rally, was released in 2010 . The second, Leap Year, was released in 2011. Both are really good listens  and are free so there’s no reason not to check them out.

    Download both mixtapes free here:
