Ebrahim – D’Angelo x Lupe x Joni Mash-Up

DJ Brainchild is always sliding me over random hot shit that I may not be up on.  This is one of those things.  An artist by the name of Ebrahim creates a snazzy little track on the spot using nothing but beatboxing and a couple of piano chords. And tops it all off by fusing lyrics from three different songs (and three different genres for that matter), D’Angelo’s “Lady,” Lupe Fiasco’s “Paris, Tokyo” and Joni Mitchell’s “Got ‘Til It’s Gone.”  He could have really went all out and recorded an official high quality version of this if he really wanted to.  Kudos.

Found your site through Lupe’s blog. Nice find. Dude is talented. Imogen Heap did something similar.
