The 50 worst rap lyrics of all time: 20-11
We've almost reached the end of our countdown of rap's most dreadful lyrics. Think you can stomach ten more? Good. Purely by coincidence, today's selections feature some of hip-hop's most memorable scientific and mathematical gaffes. And we're not talking anything complicated, here; we mean basic math and elementary science. Included are well-respected artists such as Lil Wayne (again?), Nas, Lil' Fame of M.O.P. and Game. Keep reading for the penultimate edition of the worst lyrics in hip-hop history.
20. Dr. Dre - "Nuthin' But A G Thang"
"Never let me slip 'cause if I slip, then I'm slippin'."
Dre is a master of formal logic. Not many people know this, but he actually got his doctorate in semantics. Here, he postulates the most fundamental properties of cause and effect. Not only that, he demonstrates his theory with a tractionless lyrical career. After this, Dre got the help of some ghostwriters, who are less susceptible to such slippage.
19. Lil' Wayne's verse on Tyga's "Faded"
"She knows my dick/She call that nigga Richard/Prior to me coming/I had to stick my thumb in/Her ass one time/Smell my finger, make you vomit."
Is the whole purpose of the second half of this line just to make a Richard Pryor joke? Must we really be subjected to the image of Weezy sticking his thumb up his lady's pooper for a stupid pun? This goes beyond TMI to the realm of information nobody ever needs to hear -- ever, ever, ever.
18. Lil' Fame - "Half and Half"
"First Family will gradually lift that ass up like gravity/And turn your body frame into a cavity"
Unless Lil' Fame has you attached to some sort of top-heavy see-saw to literally lift your ass up using the weight of your head, a contraption which we'd really like to see, this is not how gravity works. And how do you turn an entire mass into cavity? Unless he's talking about a cavity in the fabric of space -- like a black hole or something -- that would be really impressive.
17. Chingy - "Balla Baby"
"I like them black, white, Puerto Rican, or Haitian/Like Japanese, Chinese or even Asian."
I think that Chingy does not understand the set/subset relationship. What's next? He'll drive a car or a bentley? He'll drink champagne or Cristal?Next Page
