Awesome old school rap covers

Yesterday Kottke.org shared a favorite Snoop Lion cover! This Dynamite Hack is near the top of my list...

  1. Ben Folds’ “Bitches Ain’t S**t” is at the top of mine, but damn, love this one.  We need to get a re-cover, where Snoop covers their cover with his own voice in sweet, delicious melody.

  2. Gourds is one of the best I’ve ever heard.  I literally have to hear that play song every few weeks just to get my fix.  They pretty much owned that one. 

  3. I’m actually kind of a connoisseur of strange cross-genre covers generally.  And there’s no denying The Gourds “” cover is indeed pretty hard to top for sheer infectiousness.  But a close second in terms of being unexpectedly and kind of jarringly beautiful is Nina Gordon’s (from Veruca Salt) cover of “Straight Outta Compton”.  This is tha smoove s–t!!!  http://youtu.be/NG2EGOB9-lc
