295 by Sidhu Moose Wala channels Xzibit’s Classic ‘Paparazzi’

One of the greatest Hip-Hop songs in the genre is Paparazzi by Xzibit. X became known more for his participation in the MTV show “Pimp My Ride”. Prior to his hosting the show he was recognized as one of the best lyricists in the Liquid Crew from Los Angeles. The album 40 Days and 40 Nights might be one of the most underrated albums of all time. The album featured tracks like “What you see is what you get” and of course the track that is used by Sidhu Moose Walla in 295. The song is an anthem of pride addressing a father’s pride in a son. Sidhu was murdered this year and his death bears a strong resemblance to fallen Hip-Hop martyrs Biggie and Tupac. His murder is unsolved with conspiracies surrounding this death.
