Princess Zelda spits hot fire in debut album, 'Ocarina of Rhyme'

Princess Zelda spits hot fire in "Ocarina of Rhyme," a mix tape of mashups that combines hip-hop tracks with the score to the Zelda game Ocarina of Time.

If you enjoyed Eric Franklin's post on 8-bit NES-style hip-hop , you'll definitely enjoy Team Teamwork's "The Ocarina of Rhyme." It's a mix tape of mashups that combines hip-hop tracks with the score to the Zelda game Ocarina of Time.

Team Teamwork produced the mix, which features unique tracks by Spank Rock, Common, Aesop Rock, Clipse, and my personal pick: MF Doom. Most of the songs fit well with the background score; for example, in "Fumbling Over Words," artist Edan Portnoy's intensity melds seamlessly into the rumblings of the "Battle" music from OoT, but other tracks, like Common's classic "I Used to Love H.E.R.," just sound too silly over the theme from the Hyrule Marketplace.
