Double-Dip: 2pac and Kanye West
I guess if anyone's going to properly sample 2pac, it would have to be Yeezy. The beat isn't the only thing sampled in this song either, since it seems like both K-West and Tupac are rapping about similar themes: growing up too fast and running in bad circles. In some ways I feel like "Drive Slow" is a response to "Shorty Wanna Be A Thug" — like as if Kanye is telling the "lil shorty" in 2pac's song to slow down and drive slow, check yourself before you wreck yourself, and all those other cliches.
This also might just be the best verse I've ever heard from Paul Wall, just sayin'.
