When I think of rap royalty I think of Dr. Dre, Tupac, Biggie, Eminem, and Jay-Z, among others.
When Twitter users think of rap royalty they think of #PopeBars.
The popular new hashtag on Twitter features lyrics written for Pope Francis to perform.
Earlier this month Wake Up! debuted an 11-track album that features papal addresses laid over rap, pop-rock and Latin rhythms.
The new PopeBars hashtag was started after a photo of the pope carrying a mic went viral
