Watch: A Classical Symphony Tribute to Hip-Hop History

Last March, JIMEK orchestrated and directed a beautiful rendition of classic hip-hop songs with the help of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra (NOSPR).

They did an awesome job doing some classical covers of oldies like Pharoahe Monch’s “Simon Says” and ATCQ’s “Electric Relaxation” to newer anthems like Wiz’s “Black and Yellow.”
