A lot of different kinds of people love hip hop. Gone are the days when you could spot a hip hop fan a mile off by their baggy jeans and football jerseys. This is a list of hip hop tracks covered by acoustic bands and artists, and some of it’s pretty impressive and original.
(btw – if you’re reading this on Facebook, click here to see the videos)
Ben Folds – Bitches Ain’t Shit (Dr Dre)
Jenny Owen Youngs – Hot in Herre (Nelly)
(I’m also a fan of Jenny Owen Youngs “Fuck Was I)
Ben Deignan – Stronger (Kanye West)
JussJef – Rocking That Thang (The Dream)
Some serious props to this guy – it’s all acoustic guitar. His other Li’l Wayne cover came close to making the post
Dan Black – Hypnotize (Notorious BIG)
This one’s the least impressive, but the video’s the funniest
Thugz Mansion – Tupac Shakur and Eric Clapton
This one isn’t a cover by a band or artist or some dude in his bedroom – it’s Pac and my geetar man himself.
