As the music world mourns the loss of a true innovator XXL digs through the digital crates to see just how impactful Earth Wind & Fire have had on the hip-hop world. Here are ten hip-hop songs that sample Earth Wind & Fire classics.
The N.W.A biopic 'Straight Outta Compton' has become a huge box office success for Universal. Now comes word that a sequel involving two of the most respected West Coast icons in hip-hop -- Snoop Dogg and the late Tupac Shakur -- is in the works.
Eminem is one of the most influential rappers in hip-hop. Do you know who actually influenced the Detroit rhymer himself to rap? Apparently, Em was so enamored by Tupac Shakur that he actually sent his mother, Afeni Shakur, a letter.
One of the few things that made Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G.'s beef personal was the involvement of Faith Evans. During their rap tiff, she was still married to Biggie and rumors circulated that Shakur had sexual relations with Evans. In a previously unreleased interview with Video Music Box, the songstress addresses all of the rumors.
