Lykke Li Covers Rick Ross :: "Hustlin"


Credit to PrefixMag for sharing this. I'm less than 2 weeks from checking out her show in New York I can only hope that she does this cover. I love my hip hop. From Prefix ::

There's something satisfying about watching Swedish dream-gypsy Lykke Li preface a song with the same question that Ghostface Killah and Raekwon used when I saw them last year: "Does anybody love hip-hop up in here?" She then proceeds to launch into Rick Ross's Hustlin', complete with standard rap video arm-waving, using the audience to substitute for Ross's pitch-shifted chorus. When the audience runs out of gusto towards the end Lykke Li goads, "Don't you got any jobs? Are you not like working hard?" Not in this economy girl.
