Chris Rene Transforms A Beatles Classic Into Hip Hop!

Filed under: Music MinuteX FactorChris Rene

We wanted to see Chris Rene do something less Posner-like and he delivered!

Chris took The Beatles' Let It Be track and gave it his signature hip hop stylings.

It showed more of the soul and personality he presents during his "I'm sober now!" speeches, and we like that. We like it when the personality bleeds through the performance.

In the middle of his performance, he transitions into the original Young Homie winning the heart of Simon Cowell back.

Like we've said before, we want to hear more of those originals from him! That's what we all love about him!

Check it out!! Press that play button!

The place for Beatles fans and art lovers this past weekend was the SoHo studio rented out by Yoko Ono to auction off some of John Lennon's artwork she had been holding onto. However, a Florida-based artist is claiming that the pieces for sale are actually fake, or rather "essentially cut-and-paste mashups of Lennon themes rather than Lennon prints."

Gary Arsenau, an "artist, creator of original lithographs, scholar, and author" claims that he has looked over the pieces carefully and noticed the discrepancies almost immediately. He explained to ArtInfo:

Liam Gallagher Making Beatles Movie, Wants Johnny Depp For Lead!

liam gallagher wants johnny depp for his beatles movie

Last we heard from former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher, he was talking smack about Radiohead's latest release The King of Limbs.

Now, it appears that Liam has decided to spend his time in a more productive manner, because he's working on a Beatles movie about "the Fab Four's company Apple Corps," which will be based on the Richard DiLello book The Longest Cocktail Party.

Liam's got VERY ambitious plans for this project, and he wants Johnny Depp to star as the Beatles' long-time publicist Derek Taylor.

Here's what Liam had to say about it:

"Derek Taylor was a dude. He's up there with Lennon. The film script is done. It's gonna blow people's minds, man. I'm just waiting to find out when we choose the actors."

"I want Johnny Depp to play Derek Taylor. It's got Johnny Depp written all over it, man."

Guess we'll see if this project piques Johnny's interest. We know that Depp's already got LOTS of projects on the horizon, such as Dark Shadows, The Lone Ranger, and inevitably more Pirates flicks…but who knows? Maybe Liam will luck out and Johnny will say yes!

What do U think about this project? Is Johnny right for the role?
