Rocks Off would like to thank Dallas Observer Music Editor Pete Freedman for hipping him to this little nugget: the White Folks Get Crunk blog has chosen DJ Shade's splice job welding Kanye West's "Love Lockdown" and ZZ Top's "Sharp Dressed Man" as one of 2008's top five mashups (it's No. 4). Check it out...
Pretty cool, although if Rocks Off were Kanye, he'd lay off the Vocoder just a little on his next album. But he's not, so he has to use both names when referring to himself. "Love Lockdown" is currently No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100, and "Sharp Dressed Man" is no doubt playing on either the Arrow, the Point or Jack FM as we speak.
