We Invented The Remix?

Everyone had to have a piece of Jay’s “last” album. And the congregation of producers at the time devised the perfect scheme.

Constructed with one part Black Album, one part samples from The Beatles’ White Album, The Beatles’ label subsequently made a big fuss over the release, fueling Mr. Mouse’s popularity. He went on to form the platinum-selling, Grammy Award-winning group, Gnarls Barkley. Good job EMI!
