Well, sometimes i DO listen to something of this century.
This guy is seriously talented. I just would have taken out Frankie Vali (or the second Queen) and replaced them with the Beatles (Though not sure if Paul or John). The idea of doing “I see a little silhouetto of a man” in hip-hop is genius, though :
