    Snoop's got a whole buncha covers of 80s classics hasn't he?

    I like this one because you can hear that they clearly had a lotta fun making it:

    Snoop ft. Kokane - Paper'd Up

    And here's a rare instance of a rapper covering their own song:

    Too $hort -Invasion Of The Flat Booty Bitches



    O.G version:

    Diggidy dope threat!

    Iīd really wish there were more rap artists covering other rap artists rap songs cause if itīs done right itīs so much fun!
    I also wanted to post Snoopīs Papered Up but BB was faster. Iīd crown Snoop king of the rap-cover genre.

    Anyway...hereīs a dope one from E-40. His version of the Sir Mix A Lot classic...



    ...and one from the N.W.A.- Straight Outta Compton 10th Anniversary album which was surprisingly weak. This one here i like though..

    Oh..one thing. As a heavy Gil Scott-Heron fan i must strongly disagree about the Esther Phillips version of Home Is Where The Haterd is being better. It is indeed a nice Soul tune but too polished compared to the original. No Chance !!

    I like both equally, both are super poignant as they were both drug addicts when they were singing it.
    Hypnotical Gases - Keeping my proboscis out of the dirt.

    Fun fact. Or not so fun...


    I love how one cover version leads to another here...

    ^^ I think it is. E-40 and Dre were supposed to be on Turf Talk's Hubba Rock but something happened and San Quinn took '40's spot.

    On a similar tip, Sexual Harrassment's I Need A Freak inspired these 2 covers:

    Egyptian Lover - I Need A Freak



    Too $hort - I Need A Freak



    Plus later beatjacks by Mac Dre, Messy Marv etc.
