It’s Going Down – X-Ecutioners Ft Mike Shinoda and Mr. Hahn

Great song, good mix of styles and great sound. Contrary to the video, Wayne Static doesn’t actually play guitar in this song, and neither did the rest of Linkin Park.

Wipeout – The Fat Boys & The Beach Boys

Wipeout – The Fat Boys & The Beach Boys

Released in 1987, this was a pretty fun song and video.This was a cool collaboration of a fairly new genre at the time, hip-hop, and old school 60’s rock and roll. This is sort of a cover of the Surfari’s instrumental song Wipeout from 1963, but I think it’s more of a sample than a cover.

Fix – Blackstreet, ODB, Slash

Fix – Blackstreet, ODB, Slash

A great collaboration of R&B, Rap, and Rock and Roll all in one song.  You’ve got Blackstreet on the melody, Ol’ Dirty Bastard destroying it, and Slash ripping his guitar to shreds. The video is a good video too, you have to watch it completely to the end though for full effect.

Walk This Way – Run DMC and Aerosmith

Walk This Way – Run DMC and Aerosmith

That last collaboration post talking about rock and rap groups collaborating made me think of this, which was probably the first major collaboration of a rap group and rock group together, and is still one of the best ever made. While Run D.M.C. and Aerosmith may not have started this whole thing, they sure did make it awesome.

Still Not a Player – Incubus and Big Pun

Still Not a Player – Incubus and Big Pun

This is from another one of those amazing must have collaboration albums from the late 90’s / early 2000’s to team up a rock and roll band with a rapper. The Loud Rocks album is a little less mainstream than the others but still just as good. Incubus and Big Pun is probably one of my favorites from the album, although it was recorded after Pun passed away.

Just Another Victim – Helmet & House of Pain

Just Another Victim – Helmet & House of Pain

Helmet and House of Pain made this song for the Judgement Night Soundtrack, This entire album is just collaborations, between rap groups and rock groups, it is probably in the top 20 best albums ever, every single song on it is great, and a perfect pairing. This song is my favorite on the album as the two bands just seem to mesh perfectly, and the song has two different parts, one more rap, one more…

Bring the Noise – Anthrax, Public Enemy

Bring the Noise – Anthrax, Public Enemy

This is one of my first, and favorite, collaborations I ever heard. It almost single-handedly kick started my love for Rap/Metal mixed songs. Chuck D has stated that upon the initial request of Anthrax, he “didn’t take them wholehearted seriously”, but after the collaboration was done, “it made too much sense”. It was included on the Anthrax album Attack of the Killer B’s and on Public Enemy’s own Apocalypse 91… The Enemy Strikes Black, and was followed…
