Down With The King: 25 Martin Luther King Jr. Rap References

21. Rick Ross f/ Kanye West, T-Pain and Lil Wayne "Maybach Music 2" (2009)

Album: Deeper Than Rap
Producer: J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League
Label: Maybach/Slip-n-Slide/Def Jam
Lyric: "Martin Louie the King Jr./starting all that stunting is gon' ruin you." (Kanye West)

When Kanye West was just 12 years old, he wrote a poem paying tribute to Dr. King. Nineteen years later, Yeezy married his Louis Vuitton Don persona with that of MLK, bringing together two sides of an extreme persona. How's that for a stunt?
