The rapper Killer Mike believes that the Pop singer Rihanna is the second coming of the rapper Tupac.
Find out why he made the comparison below.
In an interview with ‘The Guardian’ the entertainer revealed that he believes that Rihanna is the only artist with the talent & skill to match the late rapper’s.
Kanye is amazing and may be the greatest rock star in the world but Rihanna is the new Tupac (in feminist form)and as much as I love rock, ain’t nobody do it like ‘Pac. Ri-Ri rules in my book.
His remarks come after her ever-changing style saw some critics christen her the “black Madonna” and after she paid homage to Tupac with a “Thug Life” tattoo.
Well, though we think Rihanna is undeniably one of the strongest contenders in Pop’s arena we feel too many people use style and not substance when comparing her to the likes of Tupac and Madonna.
For, fans of the latter will know that there was/is far more to them than an “don’t give a ****” personality or a unique sense of style. These things were only the icing on a very deep and layered artistic cake which we’d say Rihanna is yet to bake.
Fortunately, if her latest singles are anything to go by the singer is on her way to releasing the classic album her discography has been missing and which should hopefully make such comparisons less…confusing.
