Perfecting the Hip Hop Indie Flip | STS - Gold Rush II

Hip Hop mainstay, STS, of the supergroup Money Making Jam Boys and frequent Roots collaborator, has cemented his reputation in the underground community through hard hitting punchlines and witty lyricism. However, on Gold Rush II, his still very dope lyrics, may have been surpassed by the creative flipping of popular indie rock bands like Fun,
  Sleigh Bells,

Hip hopster Yeezy, 

and mainstream powerhouse Maroon 5. 

Although the sampling of popular indie songs has become a bit ordinary, the combination of STS's lyrical precision and the intense sampling proves to be anything but ordinary.
