[acoustic cover] hyfr by drake and lil wayne

This weekend was somewhat productive musically. Probably because there was delicious beer involved. Today’s cover video is Drake and Lil Wayne’s Hell Yeah Fuckin Right (HYFR). Probably the hardest song I’ve done because of Drake’s opening verse which is kinda nuts. Not Busta Rhymes nuts, but more like, when does he breathe in? I’m hoping his production crew is just doing its job properly.

One of my co-workers actually requested a cover of this song. So I was like, “Yeah, no sweat. I got this.” Then I heard the song. Umm…

But it turns out it isn’t that difficult. In fact, the only line I (still) have trouble with is the third one… “Tuition is handled by some random n***a that live in Atlanta”. If you listen to the video, you will notice that I, true to form, royally screw up this line. Oh well, whatevs. Another thing you may notice is that I keep speeding up. I need a metronome or something, damn.

Alright, enough of an intro. Drake is coming to ATX at the end of February. I will not be going, mainly because I will be about 10,000 miles away in India, but probably because tickets would have been ridiculously expensive anyway.

[acoustic cover] marvin & chardonnay

This is a song I’ve been looking at for a while but Kanye’s rapping was so offbeat that it took me a while to figure even a little bit of it out. The end result was that I decided I didn’t care much about Kanye’s rapping. The main reason I put this up is because I restrung my guitar today and in my opinion it sounds approximately 12309 times better. In fact, I’ve spent something like the last 2 hours playing it. Instead of going to the gym.

Anyways, this is Big Sean’s Marvin & Chardonnay, a song about, presumably, seducing some girl with music from Marvin Gaye and a bottle (probably more accurately multiple bottles) of Chardonnay. Ah, don’t we love the lyrical content put up by hip hop artists today? Well, I do. I mean, I better, if I’ve put up something that feels like 30 covers in the last few months. Big Sean is coming to ATX in about 3 weeks. I’m considering going. Seriously, I am (considering it).
