This is really cool: Nathan Rabin, the man who wrote Weird Al: The Book with Weird Al himself and whose forthcoming The Weird Accordion to Al takes an in-depth look at Weird Al's discography, gave my "Waxing Weird: A Tribute to 'Weird Al' Yankovic" mixtape high praise indeed in this really cool article about the current wave of Weird Al appreciation. I agree with Nathan's premise that there should be a whole ecosystem of Weird Al tributes and appreciations. "Waxing Weird" is my contribution to that ecosystem, and I'm so happy to see it gaining such acceptance and praise.

And if you haven't checked out "Waxing Weird" yet, what are you waiting for? Head on over to Bandcamp and give it a listen (or a download, or even a purchase)!

I am unbelievably excited to drop a mixtape years in the making: "Waxing Weird: A Tribute to 'Weird Al' Yankovic" is finally available for your listening pleasure! It's 60 minutes of Weird Al classics, rarities, album cuts, and comedy spots getting the proper hip-hop tribute mix treatment they've long deserved. The mix premiered on HipHopDX via this great writeup, where I talk a little bit about the creative process and what the goal of the mix is. Check that out for more info!

You can listen to the whole thing below, or go check it out directly on Bandcamp for your listening/downloading (or purchasing, if you're so inclined) pleasure. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it!
