AI Tupac's influential and intense rap tone is on full display
Several US rappers were reimagined as Punjabi musicians through the use of artificial intelligence, providing a glimpse of their appearance and how they would sound.
On TikTok, BrownBoyCulture shared an insight into this musical transformation, featuring popular figures from the world of Hip-Hop.
With over 48,000 followers on the platform, BrownBoyCulture is known for creating Punjabi AI music and artwork.
Through this technology, TikTok viewers were provided a glimpse of US rappers performing the same track in Punjabi.
Drake, who is frequently the subject of AI Punjabi songs, is the first featured rapper.
Wearing a printed brown waistcoat and matching turban, Drake’s Punjabi sounds convincing.
It then seamlessly transitions to 50 Cent as his gritty rap delivery takes over. Similar to Drake, 50 Cent is also dressed in a turban and waistcoat combo.
The TikTok video then features a blast from the past as the late Tupac and Biggie go back-to-back.
Although the two rappers had one of the most well-known rivalries in Hip-Hop history, their Punjabi counterparts flow smoothly as their distinctive rap styles complement one another.
Wearing a light-coloured turban and kurta, AI Tupac’s influential and intense rap tone is on full display before Biggie’s effortless flow comes into the foreground as he sports an elaborately printed kurta.
Dressed in a beige kurta, red turban and sunglasses, it is Snoop Dogg’s turn to shine via AI.
Characterised by his vocal tone’s melodic quality, Snoop’s relaxed delivery of the lyrics adds a smooth vibe to the track.
Eminem’s hard-hitting delivery provides a vast contrast but unlike the other US rappers, he is dressed in his signature hoodie and cap combo.
Other rappers who were reimagined as Punjabi stars included Busta Rhymes and DMX.
As the TikTok video came to a close, Jay-Z’s AI counterpart performed.
Dressed in a sleeveless kurta, teal shirt and turban, complete with a nose ring, Jay-Z’s renowned authoritative tone adds a storytelling edge to the song.
The clip ends with Lil Wayne’s versatile rap tone, adding an extra level of energy.
In the comments section, viewers loved that through AI, they could listen to their favourite rappers performing in Punjabi.
One said: “This is so good.”
Another commented: “This is the best video I’ve seen all week.”
