#TBT Volume 2 – Dirt Off Your Shoulder Vs. Born To Die – Jay-Z Vs. Lana Del Rey

Jay-Z Vs. Lana Del Rey

#TBT Volume 2! This week’s track was one of my first big “hits” as The Melker Project. Lana Del Rey had just hit the scene, so I quickly jumped on the remix bandwagon. After hearing “Born To Die” for the first time, I realized that it was the perfect song to choose from her album – the infectious vocals and spooky instrumentation were ripe for reinvention. The result was a mashup/remix of Jay-Z’s “Dirt Off Your Shoulders,” Lana’s “Born To Die,” Jamie Foxx and Rick Ross’s “Living Better Now” and Ice Cube’s “I Rep The West,” with some self produced elements.
