It's great to hear the young artists paying homage to the hip hop generation that came many years before them and keeping the hip hop culture and heritage alive. Recently, rising North Carolina based emcee K.W. the Artisan gave a proper salute to the late / great Tupac by recording a newer, up to date version of 2Pac's "If I Die 2Nite" from the classic ME AGAINST THE WORLD album.
K.W. (which stands for King Wundaboi) does a "wunda"ful job flipping the original Easy Moe Bee produced track, making it a style of his own without biting or damaging the original version. In fact, The Artisan owns it to the point where the song sounds like a totally different song on it's own all while paying respect to the legacy of the late Mr. Shakur. Listen to the song for yourself here at this direct link and let us know what you think
