Top 5 Folky Covers of Rap & Hip-Hop Songs

You’re really getting this from me for #5 – The Gourds cover of Snoop Dogg’s “Gin and Juice”, but a couple of the others (“Hey Ya” and “Bust A Move”) are definitely worth watching.

You might be wondering “Who the hell are The Gourds?” Well, they’re these guys:

You’re totally sold now, huh.

…and if you haven’t seen it, the last video (The Flight of the Conchords’ rap battle “Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros”) is pretty damn funny as well.
