Artist and composer, 2 Mello, has been up to making mash-up albums lately. The latest and final of this odd trilogy is a mash-up to celebrate the 10 year anniversary for the beloved JRPG Final Fantasy VI (originally released internationally as Final Fantasy III).
This album affectionately takes the name Final Fantasy: The 3-6 Chambers (to represent both the name of the first Wu-Tang album “36 Chambers” as well as a note to the dual names for the game (III and VI).
According to 2 Mello: all the members of the Wu Tang were old school gamers, and they all really enjoyed the Final Fantasy series, and consider VI to be their collective favourite.
Final Fantasy: The 3-6 Chambers contains remixes of the first Wu Tang album fuzed with the original 16-bit Final Fantasy VI music, with 2 Mello narrating the adventure of the Wu Tang Clan’s fight against Kefka. For Hip-Hop and JRPG enthusiasts alike, there is plenty of enjoyment to find here.
