This is a mashup project of Jay-Z's lyrics and Chrono Trigger soundtrack, which was created mostly because of fan support and the fact that these tracks all came together as if they were meant to be! And it started as a little joke project in the back of my head...
Look, as a gamer and MC/hip-hop producer, I had always wished there were more idols in the field of rap music who gamed, or at least talked about it a bit in their raps. It would have helped me relate more, and certainly made me feel more comfortable in the art. There are guys like Jay who are just mega media moguls hiding their personality, and I wanted to make this to explore the alternate reality of Jay-Z announcing himself as a gamer and going crazy on some Chrono Trigger beats!
released 12 March 2013
All songs produced and mixed by 2 Mello. Additional vocals by 2 Mello on tracks 2, 5, 8 and 12.
Thanks to YouTube user mklachu for the wonderful violin/viola cover of "Wind Scene", which I used to supplement my production on track 4, "Ignorant Scene". Additional title voice tag provided by the lovely daemani, the internet extraordinaire and my favorite DOTA teammate. And, of course, thanks to Jay-Z, Yasunori Mitsuda and Nobuo Uematsu for making all the great music that was mashed up in this project!
