It started with the browse option on Spotify, which led me to “Get Turnt.” “Get Turnt” changed my life. Or, more accurately, introduced me to some really catchy hip-hop songs and a sh@t ton of new slang terms. Just ask me what “bandz” are. Or what the other meaning of “grillin'” is.
If you’re easily offended, then I guess you shouldn’t listen to these songs. Fair warning: each and every one is explicit with a capital E. And explicitly awesome.
So here goes:
10.) “That’s My Best Friend” by Tokyo Vanity. Favorite line: My bestie’s f’gonna twerk.
9.) “Gold Digger” by Kanye West. Favorite line: 18 years, 18 years/ She got one of your kids, got you for 18 years.
8.) “My N@gg@” by YG. Best lyric: It was me and my n@gg@, trippin’ on a half a b/ Then we used to hit a mall and buy everything we see.
7.) “Come Get Her” by Rae Sremmurd. Favorite line: I’ve been sippin’ on Patrón and wine/ I’m just tryna have a good f@ck@n’ time.
6.) “I Get Around” by 2Pac. Best line: And I’ll be there in a jiffy/Don’t be picky, just be happy with this quickie.
5.) “Ten Crack Commandments” by the Notorious B.I.G. Best lyrics: I’ve been in this game for years, it’s made me an animal/ There’s rules to this sh@t, I wrote me a manual.
4.) “679” by Fetty Wap. Best rhyme: I’m like, yeah, she’s fine/ Wonder when she’ll be mine/ When she walks past, I press rewind/ To see that a@@ one more time.
3.) “Blow the Whistle” by Too $hort. Best rhyme: Your mind is gone/ Your brain is blazed/ You’ve been wide awake for the last 3 days/ Poppin’ pills/ It goes down for real.
2.) “Don’t Tell ‘Em” by Jeremih. Favorite line: Girl you know I’m from Chicago/ I like the full Bobby Brown with it.
(and, you’ve been waiting for it…drumroll, drumroll, drumroll…)
1.) “I Don’t F@ck with You” by Big Sean. Best line: I heard you got a new man, I see you takin’ a pic/ Then you post it up, thinking it’s making me sick/ Brr, Brr/ I see you calling, I be makin’ it quick.
There they are. If you weren’t at least mildly offended by one of these songs, then inundate yourself with Kenny G for a month before listening again. Or try playing “Get Turnt” for your grandma.
