Jabee vs Hanson

{/literal}{include file="blk:davemorrisblog_header"}{literal}

Our “Got It Covered” series features local musicians covering songs made famous by Oklahomans.

Thursday, Kyle Roberts and I produced a segment with local hip hop artist Jabee covering Hanson’s 1997 hit “MmmBop.”

The venue is Saints Pub in the Plaza District. We recorded audio with our Zoom recorder and we recorded it two ways: XLR out into channel 1 and the on board “stereo” mic that captures the room sound. Video is shot with a Canon 7D using a 24-105mm lens.

Jabee didn’t sing Hanson, rather he gave a brilliant performance by rapping to a sampling of “MmmBop.” Inspired stuff.

My favorite part of the above video is yours truly saying “MmmBop” was No. 1 in the US for three years instead of three weeks. Heavy sigh…
