Peanuts as Hip-Hop

MC ScienZe is new to me—he’s only been pursuing music as a career since 2009, apparently—but “Charlie Brown,” a new hip-hop track featuring Blu that liberally samples Peanuts cartoons and gives shout-outs to Linus, Sally, and Schroeder was a delightful way to start the day. “This time I’m really gonna kick it!”

Enjoy.
