7. T.I. on "Remember Me" (2009)

Lyric: "The King, modern day Martin Luther, Malcolm X/I'm officially the freshest, don't dare forget/I'm gone, momentarily, don't bury me yet"

Again, this is just another case of a rapper inappropriately comparing his fame—which exists because he is an entertainer—to MLK's fame, which exists because he was a force for social change and greater good.
