Here is a great cover of one of the best hip-hop tracks of the year, Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe by the lyrical genius Kendrick Lamar. Gentlemen HALL decided to take on this challenge and brought us something quite original. They are a synth pop band from Boston. They started out as a group of friends just hanging out in college dorms making tunes. Eventually they formed the band in 2008 and Gentleman Hall was born. They have won such awards as MTV’s Best Breakout Band in 2009 and Boston’s Best Act in 2011. They were then nominated and won Billboard’s Battle of the Bands. After that they performed on the Billboard Music Awards in 2011, which made them the first independent band to so. It’s always cool when a band covers a song that is way outside of their genre. Since I loved the Kendrick Lamar original I was pretty hesitant about this one. To my surprise, it did the original justice, while creating something new. This cover proves that hip-hop lyrics can have real meaning and translate to other genres. Have a listen and decide for yourself. Enjoy The Eargazm!
