P.S. 22 Chorus Covers Hip-Hop

Last night (February 26) during the 83rd annual Academy Awards the world was officially introduced to kids of the P.S. 22 Chorus from Staten Island, N.Y. Still, these youngsters are no strangers to fame. After all, they can count Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Common and Queen Latifah as fans. And, with YouTube videos of their performances pulling in around 28 million views, these fifth graders are bonafide Web superstars. With guidance from their chorus teacher, Gregg Breinberg, a.k.a Mr. B, P.S. 22 has covered a range of music from Lady Gaga to Katy Perry. But, it’s their renditions of hip-hop hits that caught XXL‘s eye. Which song should they do next?

Jay-Z “Run This Town”

Eminem “Not Afraid”

Queen Latifah “Champion”

Jay-Z “Empire State of Mind”
