‘There ain’t no stool-pigeons here’

Everyone knows, or at least has heard some part of the 1995 classic rap song Gangsta’s Paradise, by Coolio.

If you’re memory’s failing you or if you just want to take a trip down memory lane, here it is.

What you’ve probably never listened to is the version that could have been played in a shady club, in 1920’s and 30’s Chicago. Mr. Capone would have been pleased.

Really catchy. I’ve been humming it since yesterday. Check out that Youtube channel, by the way, if you’re into music of the past and covers. You’ll love it.
