Take a look at the many rapper comedians who (whether intentionally or unintentionally) have managed to garner a few chuckles amidst their gangster lyrics. For the second installment of their editorial series in partnership with MTL Blog, Hip Hop Karaoke Montreal reveals some of Hip Hop's most laugh-worthy lines. Be sure to check out Hip Hop Karaoke Montreal's next event on Saturday July 12th at Le Belmont and go to hhkmtl.com for more info!
Ludacris, Roll Out
"What the world is in that bag, what you got in that bag?
A couple of cans of whoopass"
And just when ya thought there was something enormous in that bag...BOOM Luda gets us all with an extreme element of surprise.
(Hint: it's an ass-whooping).
50 Cent, 21 Questions
"I love you like a fat kid loves cake"
You heard the man! The suave, hopeless romantic inside Curtis Jackson has just compared his love for his woman to an overweight child's psychosomatic relationship with food. Bravo, Fitty.
Lauryn Hill, Doo Wop
"Let's stop pretend, the ones that pack pistols by they waist men,
Cristal by the case men, still in they mother's basement"
In this passage, Lauryn is calling out a bunch of douchey, bottle-poppin' club rats pretending to be ballin even though they probably still live in their mom's basement and just front like they have dough.
Eminem, Rain Man
"I grabbed the last can of chicken tuna out the trash can
And zoom I, headed straight back to the Neverland Ranch
With a peanut butter jelly chicken tuna sandwich''
Remember that time Jessica Simpson asked if "Chicken By the Sea" tuna was chicken? Yah, so does Eminem. A little fun-poking at the great Michael Jackson ties this whole nonsensical rhyme all together.
Lil Wayne, Comfortable
"I do confess to the murder scene, 'cause under them sheets I am a mess"
Remember those dirty Law & Order murder investigation scenes where the forensics team shines a black light to spot out the murderer's semen spots? In this case, it's Weezy and the only thing he's murdering is...well, you get the point
Kanye West, Last Call
"Nice as Bun-B when I met him at the Source Awards
Girl he had with him - ass coulda won the horse awards"
Bun B's date to the Source Awards had a nice big ol' booty, worthy of a fictitious "horse" award and apparently also a shout out in Kanye's Last Call. Dzamn girl.
Redman, Pick It Up
"You remind me of school on a Sunday, No class"
This witty double-entendre makes it quite clear that the target of this song, much like school on a Sunday, is class-less. Ba-zing!
Lil Kim, Queen Bitch
"Got bafoons eatin' ma pussy while I watch cartoons"
Though we're sure Lil Kim does like her Loony Tunes with a side of cunnilingus, she's actually just reaffirming her power and title as the rap game's Queen Bitch.
Kendrick, The Recipe
"And yeah my type I like them brown, just like my drink, the fuck you think"
Kendrick apparently likes women of color (brown, to be specific), much like the swimming pools full of liquor into which he dives (see what we did there?)
"I took her for sushi she wanted to fuck so we took it to go told em don't even plate it"
In a nutshell, he took her for some sush but she wanted the D, so they peaced out and asked for it in a Styrofoam to-go box.(Probably got a lil mini plastic container of extra ginger on the side too, cuz Drake is extra sensitive to the ladies' needs)
