By now I’m sure we all have songs that we love, but chose to ignore just how creepy, ignorant, or senseless a few of the lyrics may be. Almost to the point where you cringe when that part of the song comes on right? Well I’ve had quite a few of those moments over the years. And while there are way more than 10, here’s a few that stuck with me through the years:
10. Canibus Second Round K.O 1998
“You might got more cash than me, but you ain’t got the skills to eat a ni**as ass like me”
At 12 years old, I was taken aback by his choice of words on this one. Even though I’m assuming he probably meant LL’s skill level couldn’t match his, he chose a rather interesting and unnecessary way to express it.
9. N.E.R.D Rockstar 2002
“I Guess you ain’t heard that we swallow guys”
No I didn’t hear that Pharrell but umm Pause. Due to the heavy hitting production and rockstar feel of this song, many let this one slip on by. Unfortunately for me, I caught it and even though it’s still a good song, I must admit I mumble this part when it comes up.
8. Jay-Z Its Hot (Some Like It Hot) 1999
”.38 revolve like the sun round the Earth”
Everything worked about this track for me back in the day. The 50 diss, the Timbaland production, so much so, that this line slipped under the radar. Jay failed Astrology class and that’s all there is to it.
7. Nelly E.I. 2000
“Ima sucka for cornrows and manicured toes”
Nelly was such the go to guy at the time that oddly enough, no one called him out on this. I’m sure he cringes if he even performs this anymore. Or he could just flip the words cause thankfully, Pedicure and Manicure do rhyme.
6. J. Cole Dollar and a Dream III 2011
“I let you feel like you the sh*t but boy you can’t out fart me”
okay you win. I’m not too fond of farting contests Cole. I was listening recently to this album and this line came up. The passion that he puts in his rhymes leads you to believe sometimes that everything he says is golden. But it isn’t, case in point. Still a Cole World though.
5. Lil’ Flip Sunshine 2004
I’ll treat you like milk I’ll do nothing but spoil you”
So Flip. Are you buying milk with the full intention of spoiling it? i don’t get it. How could you just waste $3.69 like that? Do you bro.
4. Biggie Smalls Big Booty Hoes (Released 1999)
“I got a bi*ch that suck my d*ck till I nut, spit it on my gut and slurp that sh*t back up aint that a slut?”
No Big. That’s gross. That’s one of those things you should want no where near yourself man. No further comment.
3. Timbaland Get on the Bus 1999
“So stop playin’ there’s no need to lie fo’..why you sleepin’ with ya eyes closed”
Yes guys if you’ve been sleeping with your eyes closed all these years, you’re the weird one. Not Timbo. This one was off the “Why Do Fools Fall In Love” soundtrack and featured Destiny’s Child. And all four of them at the time didn’t have the heart to tell Tim that sleeping with your eyes closed in the normal thing to do.
2. Ma$e I Need1997
“I need a girl that if I ask her handle me and my peeps
Get down dirty, and lick ice down my butt cheeks”
Sheesh. No wonder he left the rap game to get saved. This is such a cringe worthy line, that I still can’t say it out loud. I just don’t know where he was going with this.
1. Biggie Smalls Me & My Bitch 1994
“When I met you I admit my first thoughts was to trick
You look so good huh, I suck on your daddy’s dick”
Although hailed as the greatest rapper of all time, Big did say some pretty questionable things from time to time and this one happens to take the crown. First off, i’ve never met a woman that gave me this kind of feeling. I don’t know if that’s my loss, or if Big is just being way too descriptive. I’m perfectly fine with never finding out. Purposely, I left the likes of Wayne, Gucci Mane, Waka, and 2 Chainz off the list because I think those guys are actually in on the joke half the time that they slur head scratching lyrics. We’ve learned one thing though; Biggie rocks more than one crown.
