Quad City DJ – “Space Jam”
This song personifies my childhood. Not just because it’s about Looney Toons, and the theme for the only legitimate film with star power (Bill Murray, Wayne Knight) plus the greatest athlete of the 90s, Michael Jordan, but it’s a straight up party starter. A banger in the most authentic sense.
Master P – “Mak’em Say Ugh”
No other guttural tone can accurately represent striving for success and achieving acclamation more than Master P’s “Ughhhhh, na na na naaaaa, na na na naaaaa.” True to the dirtiest of Southern beats in hip hop, Master P got the party started a decade ago and it still hasn’t stopped.
Skee-Lo – I Wish
Who doesn’t wish they were a little bit taller, and a baller, with a girl, whom they would ensure calling promptly and regularly? Now, he probably doesn’t really want to be six-foot-nine as claimed in one verse; doors are shorter than that. Good for one-on-one though.
Shaq – “How My Ass Taste?”
It’s a shame when incredible sports figures fall from grace. Case in point: Penn State. Here’s Shaquille O’Neil rapping about Kobe Bryant, and how much he sucks after the 2008 NBA Playoffs. This is funny just ‘cause Shaq’s a terrible rapper, and Kobe seems like a bad person. Too bad.
