Chris Rock's 'CB4' Predicted Rap Today In 17 Ways!

 
Chris Rock's 'CB4' Predicted Rap Today In 17 Ways!
The staff over at Complex took us back to 1993 today when a young Chris Rock (then cast member of “Saturday Night Live”) got together with writer Nelson George to write a mockumentary about hip hop music, entitled CB4.  
 
Even though hip hop had only been around for so long at that point, there was already a lot to mock about the culture.  
 
Twenty-one years later it is crazy to look at how close some of the aspects of the movie could be compared to reality in 2014.  (Or as Complex suggests, it’s incredible how close 2014 comes to 1993.)  
 
It's true the more things change, the more they stay the same...
