Jonah Hill Rapped a Drake Song, Hipster bible Vice celebrated its 20th birthday this weekend, and did so in the most Vice way possible – by inviting a bunch of celebrities to a Brooklyn warehouse and having them perform incredibly incongruous covers of popular songs.[fwdevp preset_id=”8″ video_path=”oC5r9VrL8wo”]
The announced lineup for the party, which featured the likes of Lil Wayne, Jarvis Cocker, Stephen Malkmus and more, would’ve already been enough to provide a special night for attendees, but each of these luminaries and their surprise guests dedicated themselves to keeping the crowd on their toes. Each guest that appeared was backed by the night’s house band, which was led by Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, and most used the occasion to launch into a number of covers.
Here’s just a few of the things that went down—deep breath— Jarvis Cocker cover Celine Dion’s “Power of Love” and Sham 69’s “If the Kids are United,” actors Jonah Hill and Scarlett Johansson showed up to cover Drake’s “Marvin’s Room” and New Order’s “Bizarre Love Triangle,” respectively, Lil Wayne talked more about his impending departure from Cash Money records, Stephen Malkmus played the Black Crowes’ “Remedy” and his Pavement classic “Range Life,” The-Dream covered MIA’s “Paper Planes,” and Meredith Graves from Perfect Pussy shouted out the NYPD before covering the Strokes’ “NYC Cops.” And if all of that wasn’t enough, there was free falafel, according to the New York Times.
