It is a factual statement to say that the 2000’s had some of the greatest lyricists of all time. I say the word ‘greatest’ in terms of entertainment. Rap and hip hop in the decade was the best. Not always good, but always entertaining. Today I’m going to start chronicling some of the rhyming genius brought to us by the era of baggy jeans and basketball jerseys.
First one is a doozy.
I like the way you look in them pants, see ya fine
Your momma a quarter piece, she far from a dime
The type of girl that’ll getcha’ up and go make you grind
I’m thinking about snatching her up, dirty, making her mine
Look at her hips, look at her legs, ain’t she stacked
I sure wouldn’t mine hitting that from the back
See what I’m sayin’? Lyrical genius.
This, of course, is Howard Bailey Jr., better known as Chingy and his song Right Thurr. This song dropped in 2003, got to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Chingy was never heard from again. That’s not completely true, but his reign was short lived.
