Kool & The Gang are one of the most legendary funk groups of all-time and their song “Hollywood Swinging” has been a staple of pop culture. This song has appeared in games like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, as well as countless movies. Now, the song has been reappropriated by Brockhampton who are covering it as part of the soundtrack of Minions: The Rise Of Gru.
The song contains the instrumental everyone knows and loves, all while featuring the voices of Kevin Abstract, Don McLennon, and Matt Champion. This is a cover that will likely polarize fans of the original, but given this is a kids movie, it shouldn’t be surprising that Brockhampton was asked to give their interpretation.
