Music blog Cokemachineglow just posted a covers podcast, which includes The Hood Internet mashin' up Huey's "Pop, Lock & Drop It (Remix)" (feat. Bow Wow & T-Pain) into a song called "Poppin' Lockin' & Droppin' in O Seven."
The song features the vocals from Huey's hit single atop snippets of songs from the following artists: The White Stripes, LCD Soundsystem, Justice, Yeasayer, Andrew Bird, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Simian Mobile Disco, Modest Mouse, Chromatics, Feist, Jens Lekman, Spoon, Battles, Calvin Harris, Air, Professor Murder, Les Savy Fav, Digitalism, Aesop Rock, Huey, Shop Boyz, and Soulja Boy.

Danny Seim from Menomena) covering the National's "Fake Empire." Brooke wrote about both bands in her year-end wrap-up, which is now online.)
