I accidentaly came across this music video by what is apparently a musical comedy group called the Asylum Street Spankers, not known in these here parts, but possibly of some fame in the U.S. They're doing a rather interesting cross-over between Country Murder Ballads and Gangsta Rap. The song is called 'Hick Hop,' and I must say, this type of music has potential!
If a bunch of talented musicians would apply themselves I bet they could make a very decent album; certainly one that I would buy.
