Life After Death Star-Notorious B.I.G x Star Wars

 

I stumbled upon this while randomly looking through Soundcloud and was extremely intrigued by the title. Unless you live under a rock you know that the new Star Wars movie is coming out on the 18th and every Sci-Fi nerd has been dusting off their Han Solo vest and putting up that poster they have of Princess Leia in that bikini on their wall again. One thing that almost everyone knows about Star Wars even if they don’t really know the movies is the soundtrack. And it’s no wonder that John Williams is the composer of the entire Star Wars series.

 

If you don’t know who John Williams is he is probably the most popular cinematic composer of all time. If you don’t believe me just look at some of the movies he has made the soundtrack for:

  • The entire Star Wars series
  • Jaws
  • E.T
  • The Indiana Jones series
  • Home Alone and Home Alone 2
  • Jurassic Park 1 &2
  • Schindler’s List
  • Saving Private Ryan
  • The first three Harry Potter movies (Sorcerer’s Stone, Chamber of Sercrets, Prisoner of Azkaban)
  • Catch Me If You Can

I guess that’s a decent resume…it helps when you have a career long partnership with Steven Spielberg, the greatest director of all time. Add on 5 Academy Awards, 4 Golden Globes, 7 British Film Academy Awards, and 22 Grammy’s and you have yourself a living legend. The only person with more Academy Award nominations than Williams’ 49 nominations is Walt Disney with 59. So yes I think John Williams is pretty good at what he does

 

Now throw in one of the greatest rappers to ever live, Biggie Smalls. The man needs no introduction at all and this is such an interesting direction to go with hip hop. I found myself liking these songs more than I thought. We all need something to get us through finals week, why not try some new music
