Hip-Hop Strokes

Hip-Hop Strokes

New dad Nick Valensi (wife Amanda De Cadenet gave birth to twins on Thursday) will be spending some quality time at home for the new few months. But the Stroke did manage one last gig at the star-studded, Hennessy-soaked “Global Art Of Mixing” party at Capitale last week. Opening for Kanye West of all people. New York magazine asks the guitarist, “Ever want to rap?”

NICK VALENSI: “You know, my dad gave me a guitar, so the choice was rock. I can’t imagine the circumstances that would have made me a rapper. But I’d definitely work with one. The Strokes with Kayne [sic] Rapping over the top — that would just be unbelievable.”

That got us itching to collect for you all the hip-hop tunes that have sampled The Strokes. But we could only think of one!
