If we can play devil's advocate for a moment:
Sugarhill Gang, 1979: "I said a hip, hop, the hippie the hippie to the hip hip hop."
Shabazz Palaces, 2011: "Yeah, you know I'm free, s**t, I'm free ... To make consume to catch the stuff that holds me down To capture my desires fashion out of this a crown Free to fill my smiles up with these tears that I forgot And haunt myself besides these pretty ghosts that float my heart You know I'm free."
When a holographic version of Tupac performed live at Coachella, the stage wizardry proved a little too realistic for some. Just wait until they do the same for Biggie.
