Orchester Covers Hip-Hop From the Last 20 Years


Back in March, the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra performed a 30-song medley of some of the most influential hip-hop hits from the past 20 years. Arranged and conducted by Radzimir Dębski – better known as JIMEK – the 10-minute-long arrangement opens up with Kendrick Lamar’s “Swimming Pools” before closing out with an original. The entire hip-hop spectrum is explored, with classic tracks like Dr. Dre’s “Still D.R.E.” and Missy Elliott’s “Get Your Freak On” receiving the loudest audience ovations.
