Elton John Wants To Rap

Elton John and Eminem

Elton John revealed to Rolling Stone magazine that he wants to put out a hip-hop album. He says, “I want to work with Pharrell, Timbaland, Snoop, Kanye, Eminem and just see what happens. It may be a disaster, it could be fantastic, but you don’t know until you try.”

Instead of writing all new songs, we thought Elton could simply update some of his classics with a hip-hop twist:

  • The Bitch Is Back (With Another Paternity Test)
  • Bennie and the Crips
  • The Circle of Life With No Parole
  • Your Song (To Listen To During a Drive-By)
  • Tiny Dancer On a Stripper Pole
  • I’m Still Standing (Thanks To a Bulletproof Vest)
