Hip-hop’s sound has been in constant evolution. It’s this simple willingness of its artists that allow the culture to be pushed forward time and time again.
This could be another one of those times.
D-Werd and Young Scratt have been putting on in Cleveland for years. Writing, recording, and performing from an early age, they’re seasoned veterans with versatile flows and adaptable styles. The duo recently connected with another Clevelander, Jessi Jetz, to put an ill flip on an opera classic that everyone has heard at least once.
Luciano Pavarotti is considered one of the finest opera singers of all time. Born in Italy, his claim to fame happens during his classic Largo al factotum, or what’s more popularly known as the Figaro song. You’ve definitely heard it before as it’s been used countless times in Hollywood films.
But it’s finally got that hip-hop flip we’ve all been waiting for.
Fingeroll samples the classic opera record and adds a twist that’s undeniably catchy. The sex-themed track meets the crossroad of Scratt’s melodic flair with Werd’s rhythmic bars. The one, two punch is accented by a spicy encore from Jessi Jetz.
