Socalled is a Montreal-based queer musician who mixes klezmer and rap to create... this. This is "The Good Old Days."

I also wanted to put up the video for "You are never alone," which is a great video, but Socalled's record label doesn't allow embeds. So click the previous link or watch this non-professionally recorded live performance:
And here he is with Xtra on what attracted him to klezmer:
Of course, what initially turned me on about traditional Yiddish music were all the hot, sweaty, half-naked dudes with clarinets, accordions and fiddles, playing their wild, orgiastic melodies deep into the night. No, seriously, I liked klezmer from the '30s and '40s at first because it was a form of music from my own culture that I'd never heard, that was simply funky as hell.
