Sample Justice? Revenge of the Nerds - Wonderwall

Needed to mix it up a bit and throw in some Indie Hip Hop, this time spotlighting a new group Revenge of the Nerds (@r3vengeofnerds). The trio is composed of David Randall (@DRmusik), Kyle Christopher (@KChristopher1) and Ramir Vincent (@RamirV), all of whom have been on the grind songwriting, singing and producing. Their recent cover of Oasis's Wonderwall has turned a few heads and gained them some notoriety as a group. Their version takes the hook from the original song, giving it a familiar flavor until the verses flip it on a Hip Hop/R&B tip. They chose a great track to sample and all things considered I think they did a pretty solid job giving it an updated sound.

If you like their cover of Oasis's original, below is another new track by the titled Shimi-Mister, which is pretty dope in it's own right, with an R&B feel over live drum and bass...
