This One-Man Version of “No Scrubs” Is Surprisingly Excellent

It's been 15 years since TLC taught the world the proper definition of "scrub." Now, talented live loop musician Elijah Aaron has made "No Scrubs" his own by carefully layering instrumental parts one after the other—inlcuding the piano melody from "A Little Bit of Love" by Brenda Russell (perhaps best known from its use in Big Pun's "Still Not a Player").

The result is "No Scrubs" as you've never heard or seen it before. Enjoy.
