Ben Folds + Dr. Dre = Magic

For Beckeye.

Here is Ben Folds' version of Dr. Dre's classic "Bitches Ain't Shit" (mos def not suitable for blasting in your cube at work). Possibly the funniest effing cover ever. When I saw Ben in concert a few years ago, he told us many people thought he'd recorded the song as a joke, but he said, "If it was a joke, I wouldn't have wasted such a great melody on it." Word, Ben.



That's some real conversation for your ass.

Good Lord. That's the greatest shout-out I've ever gotten. Thanks, Red. You are one bitch who is the shit.

That's good but Tenacious D is still the king of cursy lyrics.

This song definitely got the loudest reception when he I saw him in concert in Norfolk six months ago.

Fantastic. The bigger his glasses, the funnier this is.
