I first caught this a year back on The Current. It may be a couple years old, but it’s one of the most well done rock renditions of a hip-hop song.
I’m not one for post-grunge rock or Lil Wayne, for that matter, but Framing Hanley takes Lil Weezy’s original and turns it into a alt rock treat. I will say, however, the extensive amount of covers, remixes and mashups that artists have been doing with Lil Wayne’s originals have been putting his music in a better light.
If you’ve got any good hip-hop to rock covers, post ’em up!
