I like this version of Pachelbel’s Canon. Actually, I like most versions of Pachelbel’s Canon, but this might be the only rap song I like. When you take a completely classical song–and make it your own–I think that’s a sign you’ve mastered your art.
There’s actually a number of rap versions of this song. Kudos to the artists. Like Picasso–who was a seriously talented artist before he started into cubism. He mastered an art form before he made it his own.
I hope I can do that with blogging.
