Jimi Hendrix, Rap God?!

Jimi Hendrix producer Eddie Kramer is convinced that the guitarist would have been an ‘enormous force’ in modern music and a pioneer of rap if he was alive today.
Speaking ahead of the release of new documentary, Electric Church, Kramer also
added “This whole idea of street music would have definitely influenced him,”. “Jimi was aware of everything that was going on, he was a musical sponge. The next step? Who knows… He may have even gotten into rap.” Kramer added: “I think about this all the time. Not only would he have been a great record producer, but he would have had his own record company, a film company, a musical production company.” Kramer worked with Hendrix on his final album ‘Electric Ladyland’ in 1968.
