No Love - Eminem ft. Lil' Wayne

Why do rappers think they have the liberty to ruin classic songs?

Case in point: No Love.  Take Haddaway's 1993 tune What is Love.  Add a pretty standard hip hop beat.  'Talk' over it reeaaally faaaast.  Include some swear words because, you know, that's mature.  Film video about young boy being bullied to show you have heart, vulnerability and that your track has a message.  Contradict this by looking reaaaally haaard, exuding 'gangsta' attitude and the fact you probably shoot people for fun.  Release said track and watch it soar up the charts.
