This is probably the best acoustic cover of a hip-hop track since Dynamite Hack did "Boyz N The Hood" (like what...Wikipedia says 9 years ago). I'd maybe even argue that it's even better than the N.W.A. cover. Die Orsons, a German hip-hop group, took an entirely unlistenable song ("Turn My Swag On" by the apparently tone deaf and semi-literate Soulja Boy), lifts it out of its original swagger-tastic context and drops it into the context of an actual child soldier. To hilarious effect.

No, not really. It's actually pretty sad. But really good.
