    Default Mandolin cover of Kanye West Hip Hop/Rap

    I don't listen to much hip hop/rap but I have a few songs. I thought Welcome to Heartbreak by Kayne West had a cool riff so I figured I'd learn it on mandolin. I record and tinker in GarageBand so I decided to go ahead do the whole song. I programmed the strings, drums, bass, piano and so other effects. Vocals, acoustic guitar and mandolin are all me. The really high "Oooooo"s were a little out my range. Don't laugh at my rappin'! Ha... enjoy.

    Very adventuresome on your part and nicely done. I get tired of people who look like me--old white guys-- saying "I like ALL kinds of music........ except RAP!" Why don't you try Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise?" It's got great string parts.
