Rock is one of the foundations of this great music we call hip-hop, having provided so many of the founding break beats that we all know like the back of our hands. At some point in the early 90’s, however, some evil genius figured out that really shitty rock and metal groups should get on the rap bandwagon, having been mortal enemies for years before that. The end result was of course Fred Durst, who’s only notable achievement was banging a bunch of girls who were way out of his league. Here are some of the Rap Rock collaborations that will make you want to take to your ears with a rusty razor…
A marketer’s dream and a music fans nightmare, all rolled into one.
KRS went though an unfortunate period when he made that H.E.A.L. album and hung-out with R.E.M. Let’s just call it his ‘College Period’, when he experimented with cheap LSD and had his first lesbian experience.
Puffy‘s voice against the replayed ‘Kashmir’ riff couldn’t bust a grape in a fruit fight. Guess he never heard Schoolly D‘s ‘Signifying Rapper’, huh?
Jigga, this is why Sade turned you down. Having your balls caught in a paper shredder > listening to Linkin Park.
There was a time when Chuck D could do no wrong. This was not one of those times.
What’s the best way to disrespect the legacy of a great hip-hop lyricist just months after his death? Take his vocals and mix them with shitty God Rock.
Some of Judgement Night‘s team-ups worked. This one? Not so much.
Surely a rock remake of a rap classic couldn’t be that bad, right? Wrong!
Bonus: When Rock Rap becomes Fudge Rap. Is ‘Butterfly’ some kind of code used in public toilets?
