Page 3 of 4

27. A$AP Ant - "Bath Salts"

"I see fear/You some fucking queers/Grow a fucking beard/I'm 'posed to be here."

So if I grow a beard, will it make me not queer? Will I finally measure up to these impossible standards of masculinity?

26. Pitbull - "Give Me Everything"

"Me not working hard? Yeah, right. Picture that with a Kodak/and, better yet, go to Times Square, take a picture of me with a Kodak"

It's not so much the rhyming a word with the same word that I have a problem with here; it's the hilarity of the laziest "rhyme" imaginable coming right after the rhetorical question, "Me not working hard?" Oh, yeah, I can picture it, with a Kodak.

25. OJ Da Juiceman - "I'm Gettin' Money"

"Movin' in the Grand Prix, same color as thunder."

Wait, this line isn't stupid. This line is genius! How do you describe the indescribable? "Same color as thunder" is right up there with the taste of a whisper, the vision of a scream and the sound of a tree falling when nobody can hear it.
