    Yes I presume just a matter of time. I personally did a LOT of listening and sampling / playing of classical music. Rappers liked it and rapped on it, it was popular for a time, this seems like a natural progression. Plus they're both good. Is that Yo-Yo Ma btw?

    Great post Indigo.

    Several days ago, Questlove of the Roots did something with members of the Phila. Orchestra.....similar to this....with the music of Stravinsky and Debussy...i bailed cause the ticket price was too high but it was at the Kimmel Center

    Always geeked when I see hip hop evolve. Like jazz, its always changing, reflecting on itself and then coming up with recombinant strains...
