If you were sitting and moping in your room because no one had mashed up Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready to Die with Lana del Rey’s Born to Die yet, get ready to wipe up your tears – it’s finally happened.

Big thanks to producer Terry Urban for, on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of Biggie’s death, curating this mash up of Lana’s canned-strings instrumentals and some of her creepily pitch-shifted vocals with the legend’s classy gritty verses. The whole thing’s worth a listen, but we’re partial to “Juicy Lolita,” which somehow sounds like a spy-movie theme, and “Money is the Anthem,” which makes great hay out of one of Lana’s more capitalistic sing-talked assertions. If you think Born Ready to Die is blasphemy or genius depends on your taste, but you’ll definitely want to hear it either way. Check it out.
