The iconic rapper Notorious B.I.G. has been resurrected in a new mashup of 2Pac’s notorious diss track, “Hit ‘Em Up,” thanks to the power of artificial intelligence. The remix was first posted on Reddit by the Yedits community, a group dedicated to mixing and editing a wide variety of artists’ music. Although the snippet is only one minute long, the AI-generated Biggie vocals are quite convincing.

The mashup has been making the rounds on social media, picking up steam since its initial release. Other rappers, both living and deceased, have also been subject to the AI craze in recent times, with varying degrees of success.
Timbaland, a well-known producer, used AI-generated Biggie vocals to create a new song, which he shared on Instagram. In the clip, Timbaland discusses the controversy surrounding the use of AI in music and reveals that he has a solution that will benefit everyone.
However, not everyone is a fan of AI-generated music. Snoop Dogg recently shared an AI mashup featuring Michael Jackson rapping through C-Murder’s “Down 4 My N’s” hit song, and his reaction was less than enthusiastic. He described the mashup as “outta hand” and expressed his disbelief in the post’s caption.
