After releasing his well-received Kendrick Lamar and Dr. Dre mashup project, The DAMN. Chronic, DJ Critical Hype now plans on taking on Drake and Andre 3000.

In a recent interview with Genius, the Vancouver producer revealed that he plans on creating two new mashup projects: one mixing Drake’s vocals with beats from 9th Wonder, and the other blending 3 Stacks’ vocals with Kaytranada‘s production. Hype didn’t detail when he plans on dropping the mashups, however.

In the same interview the producer talked about how The DAMN. Chronic came to be.

“I really enjoyed splicing elements of the original Dr. Dre songs and productions with Kendrick vocals in a way that seemed relevant or themes that went together,” Hype said, adding that he spent four or five months making a capellas for the project. However, he had to scrap several mixes that he was working on for the release, including mashups of  “XXX.,” “Sing About Me, I’m Dying of Thirst,” and “untitled 02 | 06.23.2014.”

Several months ago, Kendrick released a collector’s edition of DAMN. The album art features Lamar wearing a t-shirt with the album’s name on it, while the new track list is backwards so it starts with “DUCKWORTH.” instead of “BLOOD.”
