Team Teamwork blasts the past with 'Super Nintendo Sega Genesis'

He's already turned the respective soundtracks to Final Fantasy VII and Ocarina of Time into sweeping, hip-hop masterpieces -- now video game mash-up specialist Team Teamwork has set his sights on more aged fare. Last night, he launched his latest album, the aptly titled "Super Nintendo Sega Genesis," which interested parties can now acquire on a Pay-What-You-Want basis.

The album manages to take singles from artists like Kanye West, Ludacris, Childish Gambino and Ghostface Killah, and wraps them in a delicious layer of nostalgia-inducing themes from Mortal Kombat, Donkey Kong Country 2, Ristar and A Link to the Past. It may sound kitschy, but it's no joke -- the mash-up of "Shutterbug" and the theme to Super Metroid was so unbelievably fresh, we nearly fainted.
