Hey Hey all… how’s your week going? I started pretty slow Monday, after staying up until the wee hours in the morn watching my Ravens loose to the Steelers 🙁 booo… lol … but you know I still love the Ravens and we’re in good enough standings to make the playoffs…
I’ve really been playing a lot of tracks off “Pink Friday”. I noticed when I first heard “I’m The Best”, I immediately recognized the violin riff toward the end. I thought to myself “that’s the mad violinist for sure”.
I hadn’t had time to search all the track info, but knew it was produced by Kane Beatz. Ashanti “The Mad Violinist” is signed to Kane Beat’s The Building production team. I got confirmation from The Mad Violinist Twitter page, it is indeed him. Here is the snippet with the violin part:
I’m The Best Violin Solo
Ashanti has been doing a lot of new covers and freestyles. This guy is so talented,and you can see he is passionate about his craft. Check out his renditions of Rick Ross’s “BMF” and Alicia Keys’s “Un-Thinkable”:
