Brooklyn-based DJ Cappel and his friend Smitty have done 12 mash ups of Sinatra and Biggie songs for a project called Blue Eyes Meets Bed-Stuy Bed-Stuy being Biggies old New York neighborhood, Bedford-Stuyvesant.
Cappel admits, It would definitely be a big surprise for [Sinatra]. I dont know if its the best, but its different.
He says the compilation of hits is big in New York and L.A., but unfortunately, everyone in the record industry is scared to touch it because its hard to clear the samples.
In his words, Its as illegal as it gets, but he explains, [Smitty and I] are trying to spark a change in the music industry.
He says theyll keep doing mash ups, but insists some artists just shouldnt be mashed, like Richard Simmons and Chingy.
