There's Wood Enough Within

Stylus has a list of Shakespeare Character/Hip-hop Artist analogies. Such as:

Caliban (The Tempest) – Three 6 Mafia Surreal, grotesque monster mash that teaches us more about style and the dark side of (in?)humanity then we ever realize.

Hamlet – Eminem Done in by the women around him. Responds in kind with pure misogyny. He’s focused on the past, obsessed with his mind, and only acts on half of his thoughts. At his worst he’s pure ego, but eventually he fleshes himself out without losing his one irreplaceable skill: a pure sense of language.
