Video: Mic Excel “Dear Prudence (feat. Melissa Coccionitti)”

“Good evening. The death of a man who sang and played the guitar overshadows the news today.” Perhaps the greatest understatement of all time, these were Walter Cronkite’s words 33 years and two days ago; the day Beatles guitarist John Lennon was shot to death. In a fitting tribute to a man who sang and played guitar, Mouse Media, Buffalo rapper Mic Excel, and singer Melissa Coccionitti have recreated one of Lennon’s most well-known songs, “Dear Prudence.” Excel lays down tight verses over a bombastic remixed beat as Coccionitti sings the iconic hook in this dark tour of Buffalo and recreation of Lennon’s murder. Check it out below.
