Over the last two days, the music blogging world has been buzzing more than an angry's hornet nest at the news that Justin Vernon
will be making an LP with Minneapolis hip-hop performer Astronautalis
. People seem to be acting like there's no precedent for a folk star like Vernon to make hip-hop because they've apparently forgotten about "Lost in the World" from My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
. The Bon Iver frontman (along with fellow Bon Iver bandmate S. Carey and Ryan Olson of Gayngs) has already recorded the album. Vernon, Carey, and Olson created the music which Astronautalis freestyled over. This could be interesting.
