The 10 Best Indie Covers of Kanye West Songs

Previous / NextShift + → 1 of 11

Kanye West‘s music has more depth than your typical hip-hop artist. His productions are like compositions, and he’s one of the few hip-hop acts that gets covered by indie artists and actually taken seriously. Sure, we’ve seen indie covers of Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, and Eminem, but they’re tongue-in-cheek versions that come off as borderline ironic or downright laughable. But an acoustic take on “Heartless” or a dramatic rock version of “Runaway” is a different story. Here’s our picks for the 10 Best Indie Covers Of Kanye West Songs.

    @FrankieFlips Cris Cab isn’t really indie. Pretty sure he’s under Universal, and he’s not really indie in style either.

  • Rillest

    Meh, I didn’t really like Cabs cover anyways

    This was an awesome post hopefully we will see similar ones in the future. I really enjoyed seeing other artist add a different take on what we have grown accustomed to.

    Nice list. Rebecca Loebe – Stronger is a pretty solid one too.
