Benja Styles – “Christopher Cobain – Big Poppa Fire”

The first track of our 7Tracks2Back series this week focuses on Philadelphia-based DJ/remixer/producer, Benja Styles, as he comes through in a really big way with a Biggie Smalls/Kurt Cobain mash-up which hits the perfect balance as many cross-genre remixes can’t or don’t.  I’ve heard other attempts at crossing Nirvana with iconic hip-hop artists (some failed … Continue reading Benja Styles – “Christopher Cobain – Big Poppa Fire”
