The big homie Oscar Wilde believes, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.” In seeming subscription to that belief, a recent remix for Lil Uzi Vert’s “XO Tour Llif3” appeared on the internet. Here homage is paid to a Golden Era giant.

Should Hip-Hop be applauded for contemporary artist’s willingness to celebrate classic lyricism? Is this another example of how an iconic MC’s timeless voice continues to captivate? What would Tupac say?

Let’s focus on the positive. This demonstrates how dope lyricism doesn’t die.  Lil Uzi Vert, is confident in his creativity. Stay tuned as the Philly Provocateur preps for the release of Luv is R6ge 2. 

Regardless of the how or the why the internet happened; now, take a listen.
