Whether it’s the Arctic Monkeys covering Drake or Tinchy Stryder on set with the bloody Chuckle Brothers, BBC’s Radio 1’s Live Lounge has played a host to all manner of weird and wonderful covers from unexpected artists. Ed Sheeran is very well acquainted with the show, having covered and been covered by many different artists. Today is no different, with Ed premiering his very own version of bangin’ but very very stupid gas anthem ‘Coco’ by Long Beach rapper O.T Genasis. Through his clever transcription of the song into the acoustic mode, Ed has succeeded in turning a tune that would be condemned by many as glorifying drug culture into something you’d catch your nan listening to on her Ipod Mini while she trawls around Morrison’s on a Sunday morning. We laughed when we first heard it, but it’s actually very accomplished and we have to applaud Ed for the nod towards the Hip Hop community.
