Listen To This Jazzy Cover Of "Gangsta’s Paradise"

Adele Anderson”>Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise” is a pretty badass song already, but put Robyn Adele Anderson on vocals and a big band sound behind it, and it’s somehow even cooler. This version of the 90’s rap hit sounds like it belongs in a speak easy (or on The Great Gatsby soundtrack). It makes us want to throw a roaring 20’s party and play this on repeat. 

Postmodern Jukebox has been giving vintage makeovers to songs for a while. You’ve got to check out Fountains of Wayne’s “Stacey’s Mom” and Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” for starters.
