the notorious xx is a tremendously good mashup by producer wait what of The xx's debut album and assorted Biggie Smalls verses, mostly from Ready to Die. infinite victory and it's all about the crystalizabeths are my favourites, but the whole thing is perfect: ethereal guitar, sparse percussion, and Biggie's relentless rhymes.

I like this almost as much as I like the old 'leaked' copy of Built to Spill's You in Reverse that was interspersed with the occasional THIS IS MIKE JONES. It's occupying a similar space in my brain, but, uh, in reverse.

Anyway, thanks a bunch this is incredible and I've been listening to it pretty much nonstop the past week.
