Robin Williams' sad death earlier this week unleashed an outpouring of sympathy for his family and remembrances of some of his iconic work as one of the greatest comedians and actors of his or any generation. Williams' influence was so wide-reaching that he and the films and television shows in which he starred wormed their way into a slew of hip-hop songs, with heavyweights such as Jay Z, Kanye West, Jeezy and Big Daddy Kane all name-checking Williams, Dead Poet's Society, Jumanji, Mork & Mindy or any number of his iconic works—yes, even Flubber. As the world continues to mourn a fallen great, here are 21 hip-hop songs that name-check Robin Williams. —XXL Staff
