There's something untouchable about OutKast's "Roses." First off, Speakerboxxx/The Love Below is one of the best albums of the 21st century, hip-hop or otherwise. Secondly, I can't name one track, since its release in 2003, that encompasses the pure theatricality of rap better than "Roses." Can you?
So I give GoldLink a lot of credit for stepping up to the plate, and taking his best swing at this cover. He's brought Masego and Hare Squead with him, delivering a truly enjoyable performance of OutKast's classic tune on BBC Radio 1's Piano Sessions.
