Chrono Trigger + Jay-Z = Chrono Jigga, and it's great

Ever since Wiz Khalifa shamelessly ripped "Schala's Theme" for the single "Never Been," I've been under the belief that a Chrono Trigger mash-up album would be gold. Chrono Jigga, a Chrono Trigger mash-up that throws Jay-Z's best cuts on top, proves my theory right.

Hearing Jay-Z's coke-slinging, franchise-owning bravado from The Black Album and The Blueprint over classic Chrono Trigger loops and orchestra arrangements just works. "Ignorant Scene," "Wind Cry," and "Marle, Lucca, Schala" are my current favorites.

Chrono Jigga is produced by Lexington artist 2 Mello. He says the project started as a joke, but soon became too good to ignore.

"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," 2 Mello wrote on the Bandcamp album page. "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!"
