Help me find an M.I.A. mashup?

I'm looking for a specific mashup, and suggestions for similar mashups.

Several years ago I came across a mashup which was about 15 minutes long. It started off with some horns, and a chorus of doods chanting something like "Hip. Hop. Hip. It's better than / Hip. Hop. Hip," etc. MIA's "Pull Up the People" was in it, but sped up, and there was also another song with a guy yelling something like:
"East side where the fuck you at? Let me see your haaaands up!
West side where the fuck you at? Let me see you haaaands up!"

Tried searching over the years, every now and then, Google, lyrics databases, etc. Can't score a hit. Can't find it on my old computer.

Additionally, I'm looking for any suggestions to similar songs, or stuff that's danceable and fairly long in length. My dark sekrit is that I dance in the garage in my dress shoes late at night, cuz the soles and the cement let me slide around. I practice, and have been digging Girl Talk's latest, but just want something similarly poppy, fast, and beat-y.

Thanks, MeFi!

I like DJ Riko's mashups. Longish, poppy and with beats!

That first chorus of doods is probably the dead prez song 'Hip Hop.'

Maybe the Diplo/M.I.A. Piracy Funds Terrorism mixtape (dead prez/M.I.A. song here)?

Best answer: Is this it?

I don't know if this helps, but the "Hip. Hop." chorus might be "Hip Hop" by Dead Prez.

I'm a big fan of DJ C's Baltimore mix.
