Makin' them think Hip Hop is dead, exhume the body if you ain't scared

from Outkast – Chonkyfire Lyrics on Rap Genius


This album came out a few years after the death of Biggie Smalls and Tupac, at a time when many people were saying the golden age of hip-hop had come to an end. But if hip-hop really is dead, Big Boi challenges his competition to “exhume” (dig up) the body and breath new life into it, instead of simply mourning its loss.
