Awesome Old Song of the Week: "Ghetto Superstar" by Pras, ODB and Mya

Ghetto Superstar came out in the summer of 1998 as part of the Bulworth soundtrack (an excellent movie by the way, and totally worthy of its own post sometime), which is why Warren Beatty is featured on the single's cover.  Apparently (That Is What You Are) is also part of the song's official title, but I don't think I knew that before today.

The compilation by Pras, Ol' Diry Bastard and Mya took its chorus from the 1983 Kenny Rodgers and Dolly Parton tune, Islands in the Stream.
