When Rap Lyrics Get Censored, Even on the Explicit Version

The Notorious B.I.G. on Jay-Z's "A Dream" (2002)

Lyrics Censored: "Time to get paid, blow up like the [World Trade]."

Originally uncensored when it was used a reference to the 1993 WTC bombing on Biggie's debut single "Juicy," the line was later edited when re-used on Jay-Z's 2002 song, in the wake of the September 11 attacks.
