PostSubject: Favorite hip-hop cover songs   Wed 27 May 2009, 7:07 pm

What's some of your favorite hip-hop songs that a rapper/group covered from another rapper/group?

Mine are probably

"Lodi Dodi" by Snoop Dogg - (Cover of "La Di Da Di" by Doug E. Fresh & MC Ricky D (Slick Rick))
"Paper'd Up" by Snoop Dogg - (Cover of "Paid In Full" by Eric B. & Rakim)
"Guerilla Pimpin'" by SixTwo (TwoFace) & Dr. Dre - (Cover of "Guerilla Pimpin'" by MC Breed & The D.O.C.)

I got alot more, but since I'm kinda busy at the moment, I'll post more later. Y'all have at it now.
