For those of you who like your Fela Kuti minus an infectious hip-hop beat, read no further. But if the idea of a mash-up combining the Nigerian music legend's hits -- which surged in popularity as a result of the Broadway show Fela! -- with some of Swizz Beatz's most recognizable productions appeals to you, you might want to look into the hip-hop producer and rapper's recent offering.
In the mixtape, which you can download here , Beatz blends Kuti classics such as "Yellow Fever," "African Woman" and "No Agreement" with some of his chart toppers -- think "Touch It," "Tambourine" and "It's Me Snitches." The mixes take some getting used to but are worth a listen for Fela and Swizz fans.
