Ballin' Oates: Hip Hop and Hall and Oates Together at Last

There's something so right about this mashup of Hall and Oates and hip-hop songs called Ballin' Oats from the DJ Scott Melkin and his Melkin Project.  The title is just great by itself.

It doesn't seem obvious that mixing "Maneater" with Wu-Tang's "C.R.E.A.M" would result in such a great song but it does.  Maybe it's because Hall and Oates were always funk soul brothers.

There are four other tracks with hip hop artists such as T.I. and Kanye West that aren't quite as good although interesting enough.

This weird but successful combination can be summed up with this fake Simpsons product.
