42 is way too young to go.

Not that his signature song falls into most TP'ers listening patterns but "Shook Ones" is something of an oddity in rap music in that it sounds incredibly threatening and genuinely scary even now years later, but it was hugely popular at the same time too.

Nothing has "dated" it - it's not like most rap and especially popular rap where it's replaced by something else - that song remains sad, specific and weirdly compelling and really ugly too.

For us TP'ers it'd be something like if Sonic Reducer was blasting at every party you were at and even then that's not really it either.
