Hugh Laurie – Blues Changes – Episode3: Soul & Hip Hop
Soul & Hip Hop
(Episode 3 of 6)
This week, Hugh plays and sings „Stagger Lee“, explaining its roots in a real 19th century murder. That starts a complicated trail of gossip, political scandal, and folk lore which leads through the music of James Brown, Lloyd Price, The Clash, Ma Rainey, Louis Armstrong, Sir Mix-A-Lot and Kanye West to show how the spirit of Stagger Lee still influences the soul and hip hop that we listen to today.
