Organized Konfusion MC Pharoahe Monch and the Pharcyde’s Slimkid3 are marveling at Gangstagrass’ new mixtape, My Brother, Where You At?
The eight-track project reimagines several Hip Hop classics, putting a bluegrass spin on them — from Pharcyde’s “Passin Me By” to Pharoahe Monch’s “Simon Says.” The members of the group bring an uniqueness to each song while managing to keep the original track’s integrity intact.
After seeing the rehearsal video for “Cuts Up” — the bluegrass version of “Simon Says” — and “We Fly” — the bluegrass version of “Passin Me By” — both Pharoahe Monch and Slimkid3 couldn’t believe what they were witnessing.
“I think it’s a dope twist, and you have to be honored any time another artist digs your music enough to do an homage,” Pharoahe Monch tells HipHopDX. “And they committed 100 percent. Two thumbs up.”
