The Grey Album is a mashup album by Danger Mouse, released in 2004. It mixes an a cappella version of rapper Jay-Z's The Black Album with samples from The Beatles' LP The Beatles, commonly known as "The White Album". The Grey Album gained notoriety when EMI attempted to halt its distribution despite approval of the project from Jay-Z and the two surviving Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.
Grey album shows amazing ingenuity remixing a classic rock album 40+ years old with modern hip hop. Jay Z's lyrics a cutting and rythmic and we remixed Beatles beats give beautiful supporting melodies and hypnotic beats. check it out. it's worth your time if you've even heard of either artist. It is simply marvelous. Danger Mouse has done it again! 196,689 Views.

Danger Mouse was recently issued a cease-and-desist by EMI regarding this project's Beatle-sampling. While he insists the record was intended only as a promotional item, 3,000 copies are already in circulation, and one can't help but feel the loom of a forthcoming lawsuit. So the question now is, was the creative payoff of this project worth the possibilities of this potential worst-case-scenario? Well: While The Grey Album is truly one of the more interesting pirate mashups ever done, it ultimately fails at the hands of perfectionism with several pieces sounding rushed to beat some.
This album was made by using two albums. The Black Album by Jay-Z and The White Album by The Beatles. every kick, snare, bassline, hi-hat, guitar etc. was taken from the White Album, and all the vocals are from the Black Album. This is an art project/experiment I did that I thought some people might like. Enjoy! -Danger Mouse. Oh yeah, and i also used a little vocal sample from audio two's "top billin" on track 2.
