Rapper Mos Def, Lenny Kravitz, Trombone Shorty and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band collaborated on an update to the New Orleans jazz standard “It Ain’t My Fault.” The song is available on iTunes for 99 cents. Proceeds benefit the non-profit Gulf Aid. Gulf Aid ensures that proceeds from sales and donations are “distributed to organizations focused on supporting wetlands/coastal environmental issues & the well-being of fishermen, and the regional seafood industry,” according to its website.
Keith Sperra of the Times-Picayune wrote a great article about the recording process.
Here’s the video. It’s very cool.
I’ve looked for the updated lyrics but haven’t been able to find them. Can anybody help with that?
