Because you never know when you're going to get a 92-degree day in New York City in the first week of April (spoiler alert: it's happening right now), why not celebrate with something a little different. Like a freestyle beatbox, piano and ukulele hip-hop rendition of Empire State of Mind. Move over Jay-Z and Alicia Keys. After a few minutes of solo beatbox work, Shockwave (aka Chris Sullivan) is joined by one of his Freestyle Love Supreme mates Arthur Lewis on the keys, while Jon Braman provides the uke and the personal verses.
Roll that clip!

American rap star Diddy says he believes British hip-hop artists are “on the verge of breaking” the US.
