Here’s a hip-hop treatment by Gangsta Grass of the Woody Guthrie classic, certainly updated.

Here’s an excerpt by the group on American Highways: “The political divide in the United States feels as big as the perceived gap between hip-hop and bluegrass. And the bridge we are making musically is addressing both. Our fans come from all different parts of the spectrum β€” political or musical, take your pick. The idea that we can speak a language that can be understood by people who are so different β€” and that we can show them that maybe they are not so different as they first thought β€” is powerful, meaningful.”
