  • Intro
    One of the best things YouTube has to offer is acoustic covers of Rap songs. Two new gems were added last week with Niykee Heaton’s head scratching cover of Chief Keef’s “Love Sosa” and Dan Henig’s hilarious (and on point) coffee shop rendition of Lil Jon’s “Get Low”. Where do they rank amongst the greats? Check out 15 of the staff’s favorites and decide for yourself. We’ll be taking guitar lessons in the meantime. —<i>XXL Staff</i> (<a href="https://twitter.com/XXL">@XXL</a>)
