Gangstagrass is a band that I heard about a while ago from thunderboltjackson(R.I.P the blog). It's a grand blend of gangster rap and bluegrass combining some excellent fingerpicking bajos and deep bass beats. This is probably the most ridiculous mashup album I have ever encountered. Well, at least one of them. Get it direct from their website for free.
"calling on the spirit of Gram Parsons and Otis Redding and KRS-ONE and Dolly Parton and Nina Simone and Willie Nelson and Missy Elliott and Johnny Cash , to write about what we feel and play what our hearts tell us, because to make it happen is reason enough, and to share it with the world is all the reason you need, because we tell the truth with music and the truth is beautiful."
