You are now about to witness the strength of street knowledge

File under: Go figure.

Nina Gordon -- excuse me, who? -- records a folk version of NWA's Straight Outta Compton. It actually is pretty amusing; kind of reminds me of Mary Lou Lord. Although, I have to admit it's a little awkward listening to a white girl say "n*gger" so much on one song. She also unfortunately only covers Ice Cube's verse, ignoring both MC Ren and Eazy-E.

Listen to the mp3

UPDATE: Reader Maximus Aurelius writes: "Nina Gordon is an ex-Veruca Salt cutey. Not related to Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth." Thanks, Max!

WOW! I own NWA Straight Outta Compton and that was a big disappointment to the rap community! I believe in mixing different genres of music, but this one wasn't one of those songs that I would make into a folk song. I mean wtf was she thinking? To listen to that song you would have to be on crack. I suggest she stop now b4 she makes another gangsta rapper turn in their grave! Somebody ought to send a copy to Dr. Dre and get his thoughts.

Umm... I also own the original. And you obviously don't know doodley-squat about Dre & Ben Folds. Show me your record deal and then maybe I'll give a single sh*t. Just one sh*t, but zero f*cks.

BTW, the link features Dre in a Ben Folds cover of Bitches Ain't Shit. Idiot.

Damn straight. A badass b*tch singing the n-word repeatedly makes a statement that some fools get on a soapbox about because they're too busy being reactionary-"PC" to think for themselves to truly understand and I'm supposed to care? Deer in headlights.
