    I don’t care for their rapping.  When a group can sing as fantastically as Pentatonix, why resort to an inferior talent form?  Leave that to the wannabees who can’t sing.

    Hmm… I was just thinking Pentatonix had demonstrated that rapping is difficult and a real art form, by virtue of not being terribly convincing at it. Maybe I’m biased by how much I like the original, but this cover is probably my least favorite of the Pentatonix covers I’ve heard and doesn’t seem to gel as well as the others.

    I think rapping is an extremely difficult art form, as someone said above, and while this cover is not one of their best, I applaud them for doing something different, I love rapping and I love singing as well, no need to offend either just because you don’t relate to it.

    Hee. I love them. Especially Kevin’s outfit. Lol. Goofballs. Not my favorite, but I laughed so this is a good thing ;)

    Rapping is no easy feat – not doing it well. Managed a rapper for a while so maybe I’m biased haha.

    For me, the song isn’t as much fun with the cleaned up lyrics and rapping is not one of their strengths. Love their outfits though.

    These “wannabees who can’t sing” have 54 million views on youtube, 1.5 million singles sold of ‘Thirft Shop’ and 250k albums sold of “The Heist”, all self produced!

    They’re great, and kicking major labels’ ass!!!

    Y’all do not understand how obsessed I am by that Macklemore & Lewis album. I got a kick out of this.

    It’s cute for what it is. I love me some Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and have for a long time. Let’s see Pentatonix cover this one (LOL): http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/28479577

    I just love them too. And coming from a hard rock fan that says something, I’m not usually a fan of rappers. 
    I’ve seen this video before and it still cracks me up. I love how he takes the OTT flamboyant ridiculousness of it all and runs with it. 
    (Some performers, that shall remain nameless, are this OTT normally and are dead serious, LOL!)

    I liked it. Like with Gandamn Style, they manage to convey the original tone and fun-ness of the song with their arrangement and a few simple moves and props. Sure, the re-write of the lyrics sounds childish but at least they are consistent with their G-rated style.

    I love the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis song too. Rap and hip-hop aren’t easy to do a capella and they did a pretty decent job.
