VIDEO: Carolina Chocolate Drops “Hit ‘Em Up Style”

When has there been anything better than a pretty much perfect attempt at a musical genre mash-up? Whilst this cover of Blu Cantrell’s ‘Hit ‘Em Up Style’ by North Carolina blue grass singers Carolina Chocolate Drops isn’t scheduled for release there is still plenty of reason to celebrate its aesthetic wonder. Rhiannon Giddens and Dom Flemons take creativity to a whole new level by using banjo, violin and vocals to give an authentic folk sound whilst bandmate Justin Robinson uses genius beat-boxing skills to offer more than a nod to the songs R’n’B origins.
