Rap songs that aren't on YouTube but really should be # 18

What kind of depraved world are we living in when Rock D The Legend's one moment of glory has been removed from YouTube? Sometimes you just have to marvel at rap music for being the only art form in the entire cosmos where wresslin' and the Halloween theme can be combined to such potent effect via a Purple Ribbon weed carrier & his guv'nor:

Rock D The Legend ft. Big Boi - DDT
(From DDT single; 2007)



Number one reason why Big Boi is so much more likeable than Andre 3000: the latter would have never guested on one of the best spin-off songs of the Crank That era. For that we should probably be thankful because in the unlikely event that Andre would ever partake in such crassness, he'd probably insist on his cameo being a spoken word intro about why wearing Nikes is bad.

Assuming you ain't a fan of Andre's soapboxing on the "Walk It Out" remix?

+ his appearance on Int'l Players Anthem, which I've grown to loathe due to its "LOOK AT ME, I'M SPECIAL!!" ponciness. Pimp C should have clipped his wings.

Heard a mashup recently n Waynes Walk It Out is the one. 1000% w you on International Players Anthem - Freeway was right, put a beat on. He can still rap though unlike Big Boi, who also got fucked up on the worst kinda i can be better than rap juice.

Swear Im not being contrarian but I think Pimp had it almost every time on every collab and group song, like 8/10. "im looking for a girl with some good mouth" >>>> "supersonic like johnny mnemonic its so ironic" every time.

That old Noz description of that verse capturing everything parents dont like in 2 bars - says his name, insults the listener, curses a lot, references his nuts + dealing drugs - id want that on my headstone.

PEEP MY GAME I LET EM HANG TO THE FLO SNORT ON SOME SNOW AND PULL AKICKDOE

Lest we forget that cuddly uncle Bun comes in on the 2nd verse with some good ol' fashioned anti-AZN racism.

@si mane price so do you think Big Boi was the better of the two during outkasts run from 94-2000? With that said i prefer prime goodie mob and cool breeze over prime outkast

speaking of which, noticed this the other day - whats the story w both E-40 & Mac Dre having the identical comedy accent "HELLO my friend!" catchphrase for their mid song shopkeeper skits? Was there an actual Vallejo offie owner who said this ppl went to for their sunflower seeds and goldschlanger?

Si Mane Price said...

Peak OutKast isn't about who's better - it's about how contrasting styles complimented each other so perfectly. Ditto peak UGK.

Everybody rap scene got its own Habibi?

Ben Jones said...

@si mane price solid point UGK and Mobb Deep are prime examples.
