While you can no longer count the number of years Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. have been gone on one hand, their influence is still felt in hip-hop today. It is hard not to find an artist or producer who has been not been influenced by these two legends. This includes DJ Khaled who now claims that “I Feel Like Pac, I Feel Like Biggie”.
While some listeners may quickly jump to the conclusion that DJ Khaled and his bevy of collaborators are claiming that they have the same status in the game as Pac and Biggie on this latest single from Suffering from Success, they have a different meaning of what it is to feel like these two. Swizz Beatz, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, T.I. and Diddy are all claiming they “Feel Like Pac” and “Feel Like Biggie” because of the heat they are feeling in the streets because of their success. Hopefully none of these MC come to the fate of their idols and “I Feel Like Pac, I Feel Like Biggie” stays as only a claim.
Listen to “I Feel Like Pac, I Feel Like Biggie” below.
