After Plenty Rappers Have Sampled The White Stripes, Jack White Covers Kanye West (Audio)
From Apathy to Jermaine Dupri, Hip-Hop artists have been sampling/covering Jack White and his The White Stripes band for over a decade. These days, Jack White collaborates with Hip-Hop artists, including Black Milk. At a recent tour date in Dublin, Ireland promoting sophomore solo LP, Lazaretto, White covered Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead.” With hard-as-hell drums, and White’s edgy brand of Blues-Rock out front, the set brought a 16-minute jammed out session that might make somebody as protective of their own art as Kanye, proud.
With some popular/mainstream Rock covers sometimes seemingly poking fun at Hip-Hop and its lyrics and messages, is this a utopian view of genre coexistence?
Props to 2DopeBoyz for spotting this.
