Hip Hop's Coldplay Obsession

We don't usually give B-day shouts to British alt-rockers, but today is different. Chris Martin, front man of Colplay, turns 35 today, March 2. And in case you haven't noticed, Coldplay is your favorite rapper's favorite rock band. From collabos to samples to shout-outs in interviews — Coldplay worship is almost as ubiquitous for rappers as a Scarface DVD in an old episode of MTV Cribs. Click on to see just a few of hip hop's biggest Chris Martin stans.
