The Damn. Chronic

'Kendrick has so many flows, voices, and styles, plus Dre beats are really incredible, so I figured it would be dope,' DJ Critical Hype told Pigeons & Planes about creating the mixtape. “I was determined to make it work, but the truth is it wasn’t easy. A lot of the tempos actually didn’t mix well. It was a lot more work trying to find good mixes. I had to dig deep and make a capellas for about 60 to 70 Kendrick songs and try and find stuff I was happy with. I really wanted to mix ‘Look Out For Detox’ and ‘Money Trees,’ as well as a lot of album cuts off the DAMN. album. The problem is Dre doesn’t have many slower beats. I’m really happy with the results, though. All the hard work and dedication to this project paid off.” He takes vocals from songs across Kendrick’s catalog, using more recent releases like 'XXX.' and 'How Much A Dollar Cost' as well as older cuts like 'Poe Man’s Dreams (His Vice)' and 'Average Joe.' Featured Dre beats include Eminem’s “My Name Is” and N.W.A’s 'Dopeman.' This isn’t Critical Hype’s first major mashup project. Back in 2016, he put Chance The Rapper’s vocals over beats by Kanye West to create his Chance the Dropout mixtape.

Some of these are fire and some are just not! But it reminds me of the early days of Kurupt.
