Snoop Dogg remixing Johnny Cash? The Man in Black must be spinning in his grave...however:

The project was approved by Cash's son, John Carter Cash, who says his dad "would have loved this remix record. While it stays true to the original recordings, this CD touches on undiscovered ground. This is what my father was about: staying true to tradition while creating groundbreaking new music."
