Jimmy Lesondak the college music student behind the mash-up admits, I like Queen a lot more than 50 Cent, but thought the pairing would be interesting because, You have 50 Cent talking about big guns and gang banging, and what Freddie [Mercury] says kind of complements what 50 is talking about...as in, Is this the real life? / Is this just fantasy?
Even though 50s voice is more prominent in mash-ups like Crazy Little Pimp Called Love, We Will Rock You In Da Club and Bohemian Wanksta, Lesondak says, The parts where Freddie does sing, I think it makes more of an impact.
The mash-up is available at Q-Unit.net, and Lesondak says the music is legal because, If youre not selling it at all, its fair usage. Going into this I knew I wasnt going to make a dime...or 50 cents.
