Summoning The Dead: Which Six Artists Would You Bring Back To Life?

Categories: Ask a Rapper

The hip-hop world is a less than sensible place - lots of times, you're even required to clarify when bad means bad and when bad means good - so once a week we're going to get with a rapper and ask them to explain things. Something you always wanted to ask a rapper? Email sheaserrano@gmail.com.

This Week's Rapper: Zavey

This Week's Prompt: Were you given the ability, which six deceased music figures would you bring back to life?

Zavey feat. TheProDeuser, "My Valentine"

Zavey: I choose Tupac, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, DJ Screw, Pimp C and Dolla.

'Pac because he is the greatest of all-time and my biggest inspiration. I got so many questions to ask him.

MJ because I feel like the media lied to us about how he died. I wanna hear from him what happened.

Bob Marley because I wanna have a smoke session with him.

DJ Screw because he an H-Town legend; he laid the foundation for Houston hip-hop.

Pimp C because he was too real... correction, "too trill." That's what's missing in the game right.

Dolla because I was a fan of music before he died and he was a great young artist that didn't even get to reach his prime.

AAR: So what are the couple of questions you want to ask Tupac? Why he thought it was cool to wear a white bandanna tied in the front on his head?

Z: I wanna know everything about the rap game that he knew so I can get an idea of what I'm getting myself into.


AAR: Regarding Michael Jackson's death, what do you mean "the media lied"?

Z: The media is full of shit. I don't believe he died like they say he did. I feel like that was just a cover-up.

AAR: Who is Dolla? We've never even heard of him.

Z: Dolla was an underground artist from Atlanta signed under Akon. He was killed a couple of years ago. Look up The Miseducation of Dolla.


AAR: A Zavey playlist: List the best song from each of the artists that you mentioned.

Z: 'Pac, "Death Around the Corner"; MJ, "Billie Jean"; Bob Marley, "Jammin'"; Every DJ Screw mix I've heard; Pimp C (UGK), "Wood Wheel"; Dolla, "Closer To My Dreams Freestyle."
