Nice, fluid mix.
That said, the similarities between Country and Rap aren't a far stretch, considering the heavy Blues influence of both genres (and when you get into Honky Tonk, that's some pretty damn funky shit, heavily built around slinky basslines and rhythm guitar).
Past Country/Rap joints include:
Z-Trip mixed up "Rhinestone Cowboy" on one of his mix CDs a few years ago to wonderful effect.
Beastie Boys managed to incorporate some country samples into tracks on Paul's Boutique.
Eazy E dropped a Country joint on Zaggin 4 Efil.
There was a special on NPR a few years back about merging Country and Rap, too and they had rappers on air with Appalachian Blue Grass musicians.
The Gourds did a pretty sweet rendition of "Gin and Juice".
Kenny Rogers re-worked "The Gambler" with Wyclef.
Kid Rock has continually melded Country rock elements into his rap ever since he was on Jive Records back in the early '90s and on through his indie career and his Atlantic years.
Ditto for early Geto Boys (they sampled "Sweet Home Alabama" at one point).
Bubba Sparxxx and Nappy Roots tossed some Country influence into their early albums. Ditto for Field Mobb and Crucial Conflict.
