The Hood Internet has teamed up with MashupDj to offer their entire debut album FEAT online for folks to tinker with as they see fit.

We laughed out loud when reading the press release as it stated, "MashupDJ creators can mix any of FEAT's ten tracks with songs by other famous artists like Barenaked Ladies, New Kids on the Block, Pantera, Passion Pit, and many more..." But it's true, you can!

You basically pick a Hood Internet song and then the site gives you suggestions on what would fit well with it (we chose RJD2), slaps your choices together and allows you to tinker with the separate tracks. It's so easy We did this in about 20 seconds.

It doesn't look like you can embed your creations anywhere outside sharing to Facebook yet, but this seems to be a not-so-terrible way to kill a slow afternoon if you happen upon one during the work week.
