MCs That Should Get ‘Tupac Back’ Treatment

“Tupac Back” is the Meek Mill featuring Rick Ross record that recently set off a feverish frenzy of other MCs saluting their favorite rappers.

Maino jacked the beat, put Brooklyn on his back and cooked up “Biggie is Back.” Uncle Murda followed suit, saluting the Notorious B.I.G. with his own version of the track. Not to be outdone, Joell Ortiz rolled out with “Big Pun’s back.” “We have to keep this man’s memory alive,” Ortiz declares on the record before rhyming about what made Pun so great.

Seeing how MCs have used the instrumental to idolize their favorite lyricists –and because is all about good tributes– we came up with this short list of the next several rappers that should borrow the beat and who they should praise on it. –Mark Lelinwalla
