Wild Viral Video Shows What Famous Rappers Would Look Like If They Were White

A video has gone viral showing what would happen if the music industry's most famous rappers were white, and the results will be shocking.

The video has already racked up more than 16.9 million views on Twitter alone, with feedback from fans around the world. This short clip shows a close-up image of the world-famous rap star's face, but his skin color has been changed to white thanks to artificial intelligence. The faces of Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z and Kanye West were among the first to be investigated. Even the legendary Tupac Shakur couldn't escape the whitewashing video.

There's no denying the dramatic difference between how celebrities look naturally and with white skin. Each person's face maintained its own distinctive appearance, and each artist's bone structure remained intact. With the simple technique of turning skin white, people started making memes and jokes about what they were seeing.

The list of rappers who have been transformed also includes Notorious B.I.G., Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes, T.I., and Ice-T.

Most fans responded with shocked messages, many comparing what they saw.

“Lil Wayne looks like his soul is trying to leave his skin.” someone said.

“I just found out that Dr. Dre is John Cena and Ice Cube is the dad from Stranger Things.” another said.

“Why do they all seem to be doing meth?” social media users I have written.

“Not just white people, blonde hair and blue eyes! Is anyone else scared?! Another person said internet users. (RELATED: Rapper says adult content company offered Snoop Dogg $100 million to 'make that problem go away')
