I guess there aren’t many straight rap cover versions around. After all, saying you’re ‘Straight Outta Compton’ if you are not, sounds a bit silly. Unless you are white, British and into turning black gang anthems into acoustic ballads.
Much better to therefore see Kat Dahlia’s ‘Gangsta’ paying tribute rather than cover 50 Cent’s ‘Wanksta’. Can you believe Good Ol’ 50 rapped a full 10 years ealier? Damn, I’m gettin’ old.
Btw, an interesting collection of stranger rap covers exists here.
