In No Particular Order
Usher- You Got It Bad-: Lets be reality, I don’t care what no nigga say…. If you broke up wit ya chick at any point in 2001/02, this was the song that would have u walking around the house looking like ya dog died. When the video dropped and the nigga started moonwalking through the simulated ran… it was a wrap
Nelly– Tip Drill : Does this even need an explanation?? Any song that leads to my two favorite things (controversy and half-naked chicks prancing around) automatically gets a spot. Period. This video single-handedly led to the extinction of BET UNCUT, which only trails the refrigerator and car as the greatest inventions ever.
50 Cent- In Da Club: This song shut down the radio for the better part of a year… to this day remains one of the most overplayed songs ever (along with Hey Ya and Deborah Cox- How Did You Get Here) and made 50 cent an international icon. And the little Spanish chick kept doing the same move
Alicia Keys- Fallin : If for no reason other than she looked and acted just like my homie Kami D throughout the entire video, this was the song that made me start listening to music made by women. I never did before this song, unless I was stuck in the car with
Sisqo – The Thong Song: For far too long, granny panties were acceptable attire in this country. With one song, Sisqo ushered in a new era of sexy drawers. Booty cheeks had never understood such freedom.When the beat crescendo, I lose my shit every time.
Nas- Ether: Nas didn’t really spit nothing too crazy on this song but it was hilarious all the way through and is classic for 2 reasons…. 1) He called the nigga Joe Camel, which led to pictures like this one 2) Jay-Z went to Hot 97 the next day and cried on the radio… Best diss track of the decade.
Ray J ft. Lil Kim- Wait A Minute: Don’t get me wrong… Ray J cant sing for shit… and Lil Kim didn’t spit anything noteworthy. But this song has always been a lowkey personal favorite (no homo) and when Kim says ,“Hey wait a minute, ain’t that Brandy’s brother??” shit was classical.
Marques Houston- Naked : Best song of 2005… and If you played this shit when you was alone wit ya breezy, it was a given you was getting panty drawers. I wonder if the twins still want Roger to go home.
OG Ron C – Turn Off The Lights (chopped and screwed) : I feel kinda silly putting a song that initially dropped in 1977 on this list. But the chopped and screwed version of the Teddy Pendergrass classic is a totally different experience. Shit the best song ever to play when you zooted. Too bad the nigga Teddy used to like fucking with them transvestites.
