Gangstagrass: A Bluegrass/Hip Hop Mashup

Proudly showing you how much I pay attention to music news, I bring you news from 2007.  A singer/songwriter/producer called Rench created a mashup album of bluegrass and hip-hop and called it Gangstagrass. The album includes 22 tracks that mashes samples of the bluegrass banjo, dobro, fiddle, and mandolin with the lyrics of relatively unknown hip hop emcees. It’s a free download and available at

If you download it and it turns out good, then please let me know. I’d hate to waste my pitiful Internet cap on doo-doo.
