good covers of rap songs

i want to put together a mix of the best rap covers and i need suggestions. here's what i've got so far:
dynamite hack - boyz in tha hood
ben folds - bitches ain't shit
the gourds - gin and juice
[edit to add] nina gordon - straight outta compton (this is a pretty good cover)

i also realize that their are punk covers of like every song ever written, but i don't want to rely on them too much. i would like to keep the chill vibe that these first songs have.

Tori Amos - '97 Bonnie and Clyde

Of course, this cover is superserious and definitely lacks the ironic detachment of Dynamite Hack and Ben Folds, be warned.

I have a cover of Embrace doing D12's "How Come"

It's actually really good, imo
