taylorswiftfeature

From Tori Amos and 30 Seconds to Mars to Justin Bieber and Justin Timberlake, artists from all genres are taking a bite out of the hip-hop pie these days, covering an array of rap songs (i.e. N.W.A's "Boyz N The Hood" and Drake's "Over," among many others) during their performances, as Youtube originals and sometimes album do-overs.

Just last week during a performance in the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan, country music's sweetheart Taylor Swift performed an acoustic rendition of Eminem's "Lose Yourself." And Biebz recently made it his business to rap along to buddy Chris Brown's "Look at Me Now" smash during his live shows, further showcasing his rhyming chops.

XXL has put together a video gallery of 23 of some of the most entertaining covers of rap songs we could find on the web. Enjoy... and don't be afraid to rhyme along!—Gina Montana
