Mare's Music Monday

Another week and another old-school album featured for Mare's Music Monday.  It's been 10 years since this mash-up and I still love it just as much.  In 2004 Jay-Z and Linkin Park got together for an MTV special: MTV Ultimate Mash-Ups.  
Gold was made.  
This is one of the best collaborations I've ever heard.  They take Jay Z and Linkin Park songs and mash them together, performing live.  They sound flawless.  I love the mixing of rap and rock and how seamlessly they blend songs together.  It's such an art.  Consistently the songs from the album that came from this live event are the ones I turn to when I am working out or need an energy boost.  The album is Collision Course.

This remains one of my favourite albums of all time.  I love all the tracks, but the stand-out for me is Numb/Encore:
