BadBadNotGood Cover Rap Instrumentals With Jazzy, Live Instrumentation

BadBadNotGood are, quite frankly, a group of young white guys who perform covers of hip-hop instrumentals in the style of a hip Jazz-Fusion group. Think of it as the closest thing to if The Roots were covering your favorite instrumentals.

Their covers are decidedly smooth and perfect for warm nights and rainy afternoons where you want to relax to some “Brooklyn Zoo” but don’t care at the moment for ODB yelling at you about craziness.

It’s all very chill and all highly accessible. These guys know their stuff. From Nas and ODB to Odd Future and MF DOOM to even a suite of nerdy homages to The Legend Of Zelda, this group of instrumentalists come off as earnest as can be and the genuine article of people who are legit fans seeking to simply add their spin to the musical conversation of these tried and true tracks.

Watch Joseph Gordon-Levitt Cover R. Kelly’s “Ignition”

This makes about as much sense as Inception. Actually, Inception-Ignition could be an interesting cross-over.

But for now, the closest crossover between the two will have to be the kid from 3rd Rock From The Sun covering the immortal R. Kelly classic.

30 Covers By Weezer Sure To Either Delight Or Infuriate

Look, we get it. Weezer haven’t exactly been on their A-game lately. So what about more consistent bands having their songs given that admittedly-awesome Weezer-sound?

Works well with an example like the Pixies’ “Velouria,” completely wasted on songs like Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida,” and just weird (in a good way) on a track like their demo for “Better Off Alone” by Alice DeeJay.

It’s an interesting little mix and you can hear all 30 by heading on over to Stereogum and checking out their Listomania series.
