Mahavishnu Orchestra Rap Cover

I was listening to some rap the other day (I was feeling pretty experimental), when I came across this cover of You Know You Know by Blahzay Blahzay on their album Blah Blah Blah. This was the first track of the album, so it hit me really hard — I couldn’t believe what I’m hearing.

Have a listen, have a good laugh!

Original:

My feelings are mixed. Take the background away, and you will be left with nothing. On the other hand, you can see this as a tribute, and perhaps I would be listening to more rap if there were more stuff like this around. Sadly, other songs by Blahzay Blahzay don’t have any backing melodies that I would recognise.

One of my friends has a hobby of searching for melodies that got sampled for hip-hop songs. I think now I can understand the joy of doing that.
