New York native Rench is back with a new installment to his Gangstagrass Mixtapes, but this time he’s giving it a classic twist.
The Gangstagrass Classic Hip-Hop MIxtape features Rench mixing Hip-Hop classics with a country twist.
”There are a lot more people out there with Jay-Z and Johnny Cash on their playlists than you think.” Rench said, who had previously made a name for himself as an in-demand Brooklyn country and hip-hop producer and singer/songwriter in the early 2000’s.
The idea for the mixtape was born from a Gangstagrass rehearsal and the discussion of our doing versions of classic bluegrass tunes. It stuck in R-SON’s head that there was no real treatment like that of classic Hip hop songs. Choosing songs with very recognizable samples that were also easily translatable with the band’s instruments, the tape began to take shape.
The new project is definitely guaranteed to keep your head bobbing and your toes tapping as you walk down memory lane with these tripped out classics.
