UNEXPECTED MENTIONS OF OTHER PEOPLE IN RAP & HIP HOP

When you're listening to a song and you think "did they just say _____'s name?"
  1. Adele in Drake's "The Real Her"
    Andre 3000's verse is so on point with what it's like to be a sulking lady: "well, sitting here sad as hell / listening to Adele, I feel you baby / someone like you, more like someone unlike you"
  2. Duffy in A$AP Rocky's "Fine Whine"
    "Wasted money on syrup and honey, she think she Duffy"
  3. Tom Cruise in Kanye's Clique
    Now I got a crib right next to where TC lives, that's Tom Cruise...

  4. Taylor Swift in Power
    This predates the assembly of her squad, and Jay Z is just backing up his boy. Now Kanye's sending her rose cubes and she and Hov probably laugh together about how much a money they have. The world of celebrity is small.

  5. Jonas Brothers in On to the Next One
    Jay Z knows a lot about the tween music scene, apparently
