I’m usually not a big fan of re-mixing classic rock songs with current rap tunes, but I gotta say, the new 50 Cent / Queen mash-up, titled “Q-Unit” has been growing on me. By no means do I find the new re-mixes superior to the original Queen songs. I’m not sure we’ve seen a better rock vocalist than Freddie Mercury, and maybe that’s why these mix-ups work so well, as they really don’t use Mercury’s vocals very much.
“Under Pressure All The Time” practically sounds like it was written for Fiddy, and at least this time the rap song acknowledges the fact that it’s lifting the beat from Queen, unlike some other “rapper” I could mention. (Warning for Old People: There are quite a few swear words and references to drug use in the songs.)
I love the Photoshopped Fiddy that appears on the web page”¦that Freddie Mercury pornstar-stach looks amazing on him. I did a little Photoshopping of my own and this is what I came up with-I call it “50 Mercury”:Man, I got mad Photoshoppin’ skillz! Word to your mother.
(And yes, I do realize that I used that exact same Fifty Cent body two posts ago. I’m lazy and I don’t care, so thppppppth!)
