Kentucky producer/rapper/big time video game fan 2 Mello’s mashup project, Chrono Jigga, features Jay-Z’s lyrics over the Chrono Trigger soundtrack.
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!
All songs produced and mixed by 2 Mello. Additional vocals by 2 Mello on tracks 2, 5, 8 and 12. 2 Mello blends over the music of composers Yasunori Mitsuda and Nobuo Uematsu.
