Huh, could have sworn this headline was about someone else. Anyway, what is the rap equivalent of fat Elvis? I am trying think of an old rapper and I am coming up blank.

Wishing he could get high paying TV commercials with Martha Stewart.

He would have either transitioned into full-time actor (like DMX doing DMX in cheesy Seagal "films" ) or he'd be a sad caricature of himself trying to compete with the new acts.

Fat Elvis >> Skinny Elvis.  Anybody can be a bobbysox idol.  Fat Elvis knew that what people wanted was spectacle.  Jumpsuited, sweaty, karate-kicking, absurd spectacle.  "Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite" -- even the farking name of the album is glorious cheese.

I want to pull up to Chipotle to the sounds of Also Sprach Zarathustra, and then have my horn section blast out the riff from "See See Rider," as I throw open the doors and enter in a cloud of smoke and flashbulbs.

Tupac would have been one of the primary artist drivers of BLM.

Or possibly in prison for masterminding Biggie's murder.

Can a "Fat Elvis" be skinny?   I'm thinking Snoop Dogg or Ice T.

It's been 25 years.  Move on.

Tupac is still alive, though.

Likwit: Tupac is still alive, though.

If he were alive? I would imagine screaming and trying to claw out of his coffin.

If Tupac were alive he's be all like "I was the dude who guest-starred on To Pimp a Butterfly!"

He'd be hanging out with Belushi the Lesser...romantically watching some thug-ass sunrises.

He'd be wondering why it's so farking dark in here.
