The creator, German DJ YUM YUM, may have made a brilliant connection placing the sassy vocals of “No Scrubs” over the catchy Macklemore beat. While “Thrift Shop” is about buying used clothes, TLC’s song is about not wanting to get with broke dudes. “Wanna get with me with no money?/ Oh no, I don’t want no scrub,” echo the singers during the song’s musical breakdown.

Does the mashup work? Listen below and let us know!
