In a surprising twist, AI technology has resurrected the voices of 2Pac and Biggie, captivating listeners with a rendition of a beloved 50 Cent track. Even retired heavyweight boxing champion, Mike Tyson, was left astounded by the AI-generated masterpiece.
During an episode of the Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson podcast, guest Tony Yayo shared tales from G-Unit’s heyday before delving into the influence of AI voice technology in the music industry. To demonstrate its power, Yayo requested the playing of “Many Men” by 50 Cent, 2Pac, and Biggie.
Tyson and co-host DJ Whoo Kid were taken aback. Although not an exact replica of a collaboration between the iconic artists, the fusion of Biggie’s voice delivering 50 Cent’s hook and 2Pac’s opening verse left Tyson astonished. It was a mind-bending experience that left everyone in awe.
While Yayo was impressed by the AI-driven future, other artists, like Snoop Dogg, remain skeptical. Snoop expressed his reservations about a proposed AI-generated joint album featuring Biggie and 2Pac, suggesting that incorporating their original vocals would be a more authentic approach. Likewise, Ice Cube also voiced his concerns, stating he would take legal action against anyone attempting to create AI-generated songs using his voice.
