Emceez Ansari

August 18, 2012

Oh, the powers of Photoshop. Some internet genius created a new Tumblr called Emceez Ansari, and the rest is history. Well, not history quite yet, but the outcome were these hilarious remakes of some very popular hip hop album covers…with a side of Aziz Ansari. Aziz even gave the creator a shout out on his own Tumblr, Aziz is Bored, on August 2nd! Here are a few of my favorites, but check out the above link to the original Tumblr for more Ansari greatness. :)

 

Mumford and Sons – “I Will Wait”

At first, I thought that Mumford & Sons was a little too folky for me. Taking a deeper dive into their lyrics and music one day, I realized how great they are as a band. Hailing from London and reaching new found global fame, Mumford & Sons consists of Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett, Country Winston Marshall, and Ted Dwane.

With a few Grammy nominations this past year (they ended up losing to Adele and Foo Fighters) for their debut album “Sigh No More,” the band is returning with their second album titled “Babel” on September 25th. Check out their song above called “I Will Wait” for a taste of English folk, meets barnyard raucous, meets modern-day lyrical poetry. And don’t forget to listen to their original stuff (I featured their song “Liar” back in April) on their amazing album, “Sigh No More”.
