Music for 'Merica | The Apple Juice Kid - Lift Every Spangled Banner

Here is something fun for your 4th of July celebration. Hip hop producer and remixer, The Apple Juice Kid, mashes up the US National Anthem [Star Spangled Banner] and the Black National Anthem [Lift Every Voice and Sing] as a danceable party favor. 

Here's what he has to say about the mix on the Beat Making Lab website:
"A mashup is created by combining and synchronizing instrumentals and/or vocals from two or more different songs. In most cases mashups are tools for DJs and producers to get people to dance (for example: Apple Juice Kid’s mashup album Dance Clash). Here at Beat Making Lab, we like to do things a little differently. By mashing up the US National Anthem with the Black National Anthem we hope to spark some dialogue and reflection on what independence means in America."
