Carole Watson of the New York Post profiled how it seems the faster musicians live and the younger they die, the more their fans want to honor them with an afterlife high atop the Billboard charts.

The old-school rappers who started it all are now back on the MTV news and on the radio… and those songs were pretty good. These people were innovators in their field, as was Tupac Shakur. They are lost icons in the order of James Dean.”
