G-Eazy "Mercedes Benz (The American Dream)" feat. Janis Joplin

Man, whatcha know about Janis Joplin? I've got a few Joplin cuts in my iTunes collection and Mercedes Benz is one of my favorite joints. Joplin just had this incredible voice. G-Eazy lends that voice to his new track. I dig it. Hit play and enjoy. Chea!
I was digging through my mom's record collection and stumbled upon Janis Joplin's 'Pearl' record. I had heard "Mercedes Benz" before, but it had been a few years. It was one of those moments where I instantly jumped up, and decided it would be a dope song to flip. The concept is so relate-able, and the passion is so present in her voice. The original is an acapella, so I wrote some chords and called my homie John Michael over to lay down some acoustic guitar parts down behind her vocal. I'm stoked on how it came out.
