The Hood Internet Mashes Up Lazerbeak with T.I., Mos Def, Drake and More!

Lazerbeak, P.O.S., Dessa and the Rest of the Doomtree Crew Kick Off Joint Tour Next Week
Chicago mash-up kings The Hood Internet have just made a mix using six tracks from Lazerbeak’s new album Legend Recognize Legend (Doomtree Records).  The duo fused Beak’s music with the vocal stylings of 8Ball, Devius, Drake, Fiq, Freeway, T.I., Shad, Mos Def, Thomas Mars of Phoenix, and Usher.  Click HERE to stream the mix and click HERE to hear Beak’s original music and watch several videos off his album.  You can catch him, P.O.S., Dessa, and the rest of the Doomtree crew on tour starting next week.
Though Beak has spent the last several years building a reputation producing for various MC’s like Wale, P.O.S. and Dessa, he began his musical career as a vocalist/guitarist for indie rock band The Plastic Constellations.  The group signed to Frenchkiss Records, was praised everywhere from Pitchfork to Reader’s Digest, and opened for The Hold Steady.  His mastery of crafting both indie rock hooks and hip hop beats has led to a debut that straddles multiple genres on every track and oozes the assured confidence of a veteran.  With arrangements that include layers of spacey keyboards, creative breakbeats, hooky group vocals, live strings, and other assorted sounds, LRLis a quirky and clever pop record at its heart.
