So, I get this random email about a Madonna mixtape. I see the cover (above) and I say, "Oh wow, Madonna is releasing a remix album? Ain't that cute she is trying to appeal to young folks buy calling it a 'mixtape'... mama really needs to stop trying so hard."
After a few seconds I realized this is a mixtape from a Bronx DJ named The Remix Kid. Much to my surprise this mixtape is HOT! There is no rapping, just Madonna's vocals with a whole new beat. I don't know how old they are (not sure if it's a guy or girl), if they are a Madonna fan, but these are the best remixes of Madonna songs I've heard since her Erotica album CD singles. In the ten tracks they mixed songs like "Deeper & Deeper", "Secret", and "4 Minutes". The mix for "Like A Virgin" is my favorite.
Mind you, because the cover is so hot, at first I thought it was a release from Warner Bros.!

hen, we have Nina B., who did a Madonna Tribute Mash-Up. It's mainly her rapping over Madonna's beats and vocals. She does a great version of "Material Girl", which I have been saying for years that a female rapper needs to redo.

Really is good to see these younger hip-hop kids do something creative and different. I would love to hear similar mixtapes like this for Prince or Janet.
