A few years ago, when the Jay-Z "Black Album" was released, the record company offered a version of the album that was just acapella with the vocals. This was a big event for the "blend" genre, as tons of mostly unknown producers made their own version of the album with their own beats.
I only listened to a few of these
The Grey Album - this was the big one, as Danger Mouse mashed The Beatles with Jay. Many people preferred this over the actual black album. The Beatles threatened to sue, so the album was only available via the P2P sites.
The Brown Album
The Purple Album - Prince mashed with Jay
I'm not really interested in hearing any other of these, but if you are, this site catalogs them with download links.
