25 Worst Lyrics in Hip-Hop


I wasn’t clever enough to come up with this myself but if I had to put my two cents in – there are super rapper’s with just bad lyrics in regards to rhyme and word strucutre (i.e. Prodigy who never rhymes).  But as much I love Ghostface, him, Cam, and Lil’ Wayne def take the cake for non-sensical.  Up there with RZA.  Enjoy the list and lyircs after the jump.

Henry Adaso writes:

25. “Verse number 2 do the damn thang keeps on my neck pocket’s full of Ben Franks.”
Yung Joc, “It’s Goin’ Down.”
Album: New Joc City
A classic case of saying…absolutely nothing.

24. “There’s no need to lie folk, Why you sleepin’ wit ya eyes closed?”
Timbaland, “Get on the Bus”
Album: Why Do Fools Fall in Love (Soundtrack)
Well, Tim, if I had to endure your mediocre rhymes all the time I’d definitely sleep with my eyes, ears, and nose closed as well.

23. “I can double my density from three-sixty degrees to seven-twenty instantly.”
Canibus, “Funk Master Flex Freestyle”
Obviously, Canibus slept through 10th grade when they went over units of measurement.

22.”Thirty-eight revolve like the sun round the Earth.”
Jay-Z, “It’s Hot”
Album: Volume 3: Life and Times of S.Carter
And, Jay-Z skipped his Geography class.

21. “N****s in the Bronx call me Lex cause I push a Lex, and I rock a Rolex and I lounge on Lex’, and I love sex.”
Peter Gunz, “Deja Vu: Uptown Baby”
Album: Make It Reign
What are the odds that Cory Gunz ghostwrote this for his dad at age 9?

20. “Never let me slip, cause if I slip, then I’m slippin.”
Dr. Dre, “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang”
Album: The Chronic
Aren’t we glad that he eventually decided to hire some ghostwriters?

19. “When it’s hot I’m duckin’ them people with my firearm Look I be straight thuggin.”
Turk, “Trife Livin”
Album: Young and Thuggin’
If he’s the one with the firearm, why’s he duckin’?

18.”My paragraph alone is worth five mics (uh-huh) A twelve song LP, that’s thirty-six mics (uh-huh)”
Redman “5 Boroughs”
Album: The Corruptor Soundtrack
Apparently, Redman’s calculator is miles ahead of the game.

17. Don’t try to treat me like I ain’t famous My apologies, are you into astrology Cause I’m, I’m tryin to make it to Uranus
Kanye West, “Gettin’ It In”
Album: Kiss of Death
Oh I get it: there’s Libra, Sagittarius, Scorpio, and then Uranus. And you say Kanye doesn’t deserve to have his image displayed next to the word ‘genius’ in Webster’s Dictionary?

16.”Hood n***a from Bankhead, I stay by Grandma Nana I lay by my banana, dumpin’ and punkin’ monkeys.”
Young Dro, “Shoulder Lean”
With all the money T.I. makes from music and movies, you’d think he would at least invest in a decent ghostwriter for his sidekick.

15.”When you take a sip you buzz like a hornet Billy Shakespeare wrote a whole bunch of sonnets.”
LFO, “Summer Girls”
Cut them some slack. These guys graduated from the prestigious Vanilla Ice Institute of Hip-Hop and decided to try their hands at random word association.

14. “Sometime y’all get crimey crimey, grimy grimy But those with a tiny hiney they get whiny whiny.”
Cam’Ron, “5 Boroughs”
Album: The Corruptor Soundtrack
Someone should have informed Cam that this choppy choppy rhyme thing is silly silly.

13.”I’m hungry for cheese like Hungry, Hungry Hippo.”
Project Pat (“Ballers”)
Album: Ghetty Green
Extra points for giving us one of the worst songs ever known to man.

12.”If you don’t bring back my m****f*****n money or my m***f****n dope, you can forget about Christmas n***a, cause you ain’t gon even see New Years.”
Master P (“Do You Know”)
In Master P’s universe, New Year comes right before Christmas.

11.”It’s like fee, fie, foe, fum, I smell the blood of a jealous a*s punk.”
Prodigy (“Click Clack”)
Album: Blood Money
No longer inspired by hardcore hip-hop, Prodigy turns to nursery rhymes for some equally uninspiring lyrics.

10.”First family will gradually lift that a*s up like gravity.”
Lil’ Fame (of M.O.P.) (“Half and Half”)
Sire Isaac Newton must be turning in his grave right now.

9.”I like the way ya ass move to the beat You a freak, that’s somethin’ you can be.”
J-Kwon (“Show Your A**”)
Album: Hood Hop
You see, kids, that’s another reason why you should stay in school.

8. “D.D.T. the b**ch, I can go for some hours. Let Parlae hit, together we like twin towers.”
Pimpin (“Freaky as She Wanna Be”)
Album: On Top of Our Game
A terribly humorless and tasteless joke. Enough said.

7.”I like them black, white, Puerto Rican, or Haitian Like Japanese, Chinese, or even Asian.”
Chingy (“Balla Baby”)
Album: Powerballin’
As far as Chingy’s concerned, Asian is a nationality damnit.

6.”I’ll break it down for you now, baby it’s simple If you be a nympho, I’ll be a nympho.”
50 Cent (“Candy Shop”)
Album: The Massacre
Well, what do you expect from an artist whose stage moniker in itself constitutes a grammatical mishap?

5.”Thirty-two grams raw, chop it in half, get sixteen, double it times three. We got forty-eight, which mean a whole lot of cream Divide the profit by four, subtract it by eight We back to sixteen…”
Foxy Brown (“Affirmative Action”)
Album: It Was Written
This holds the world record for worst mathematics on a song.

4.”Got a Bill in my mouth like I’m Hillary Rodham.”
Ali G (Grillz)
Album: Sweat/Suit
No comments.

3.”Young, black, and famous, with money hanging out the anus.”
Mase (“Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down”)
Album: No Way Out
Now, that’s the type of money I definitely wouldn’t want to touch before breakfast.

2.”I watch my back when I’m walkin, I watch my mouth when I’m talking. My glock cocked when I’m crawling.”
Mike Jones (“Scandalous H**s”)
Album: Who is MIke Jones?
What’s next? I watch my ears when I’m hearing, I watch my sight when I’m seeing?

1. Now you know that I’m the Queen of Miami. All that loud talkin, lyin, save that sh*t for your mammy. Sounds like “blah, blah blah, blah bla blah-blah,” I’m like uh-huh (uh-huh) okay (okay), Whassup (whassup) SHUT UP!”
Trina (“Here We Go”)
Album: Glamorest Life
Actual lyrics.


***I spit facts, no non-fiction nigga

Artist: Lil Boosie

Summary: Simply brilliant, he wasn’t going for a oxymoron either, I wish

***Im a soldier like MASH

Artist – Lil Flip

Summary: So he is an army doctor kind of soldier? Don’t shoot me with a needle!

    12. master P…. exactly what i would expect.
    15 LFO… seriously…there could be a whole post on groups like them… i think we could have easily filled this spot.
    9. hahaha stay in school… so true. but mentioning previous post about lil wayne… he was a straight A student… so really stay in what school?

    Mase with money hangin out the anus… makes me just want to use by debit card so i dont get a 20 that smells funny.

  2. x on February 6th, 2009 at 1:59 pm

    here i go……

    i think almost every hiphop song ive ever heard has at least a few lines lines in it that make no sense……. not to mention, how they explain something, and in the next verse immediately discuss somethin else; the 1st having nothing to do at all with the second….. i hate that……really only 10% or so of most hiphop songs have any lines worth repeating or any that make you think at all

    kamikaze……plus when i zone out listening to hiphop, i never pay much attention to the words, an original flow and a beat is enough to make me nod my head

    at least a frank sinatra song would pick a plot and stick to it

  3. That Chick Over There on February 6th, 2009 at 4:51 pm

    ILMAO…. well, soon i’m looking forward to hip hop getting better…there has been a 20 spew of “caca dodo” on the radio to keep people ignorant in a bliss of wrongness.
    Mindless entertainment if you will…..
    Frank Sinatra…well that’s real classy.. whole other genre. apples and oranges.
    However many have lost much respect for Hip Hop as a genre therefore it’s classified as Low Culture…
    But in the “Hood” there are people with heart and soul. That money brag brag cheesiness has to go; it’s stupid to promote living out ones means. Looking forward to people spitting sense about a new way of doing things..proper.

    “Never let me slip, cause if I slip, then I’m slippin.”
    –but if I got my Nina then you KNOW I’m straight trippin! LOL I always loved that simple line.

    “Sometime y’all get crimey crimey, grimy grimy But those with a tiny hiney they get whiny whiny.”
    –LMAO this is what makes me have a love hate relationship wit ‘killa!’

    “Got a Bill in my mouth like I’m Hillary Rodham.”

    LOL number one in relation to current lyrics needs to be Dwayne Carter talkin about ‘F is for phenominal.” Stay in school you say? Yea he needs to give the g’s back: ‘Used to make a thousand dollars everytime I played hookie-Dwayne Carter absent keep lookin-I’m present on the block…’ (C) Feel Me.

  5. T on February 20th, 2009 at 9:56 am

    Very funny. cept #17. astrology is the study of the position and aspects of celestial bodies. uranus would fall under the category of celestial bodies. so i don’t see the flaw in kanye’s lyric, seems legit to me but maybe you can point it out.
    other than that hilarious.
    ”Young, black, and famous, with money hanging out the anus.”

  6. x on February 20th, 2009 at 11:47 am

    t…..look up the difference between astrology and astronomy

  7. Real Hip Hop on February 23rd, 2009 at 8:16 pm

    dude how dumb can u be Don’t u ever put canibus, foxy brown, jay-z and redman on this list especailly canibus that niggas never spits whack stuff where is lil wayne, soulja boy, rick ross, plies, hell most new rappers should be on his list nobody from the 90s or 80s should be on here U sure know how to pick em don’t ya!

  8. T on March 4th, 2009 at 10:38 am

    I have looked up the difference.

    astrology-the divination of the supposed influences of the stars and PLANETS on human affairs and terrestrial events by their positions and aspects

    astronomy-the study of objects and matter outside the earth’s atmosphere and of their physical and chemical properties

    he’s not wrong. you just spoke too soon.

  9. x on March 4th, 2009 at 3:10 pm

    wow… a dictionary….

    let me simplify

    astronomy = what smart people study

    astrology = when stupid people look up their sign

    when Kanye says “are u into astrology”… he means do u know what ur sign is…… this type of pseudo-science, in common daily vernacular, makes no reference to Uranus, but Libra, Sagittarius cancer, etc……

    a reference to a planet, a star, the moon…. thats all astronomy, as kanye failed to point out……….. unless were just missing the point, that he was trying to have anal sex with someone who disbelieved his fame

    i think he said astrology cuz it ryhmes better with apology

  10. Huh? on April 14th, 2009 at 7:53 am

    Dude, you’re a dumbass for missing the point of those posts. BTW the dude that put this list on this website said he didn’t write these.
    Fuckin’ read before you type, you dumbshit.

  11. Patrick on May 16th, 2009 at 5:36 am

    @ x on March 4th, 2009 at 3:10 pm

    Thanks for that. It saved me the trouble.

  12. Smart one on July 1st, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    Ok, first of all. Lil Wayne is not a new rapper, and he first began his career on 1989 and then was signed in 1991…but that’s not what iM irritated about.
    Lil wayne hahaha, fuck that hes wack. He got no cred, BTW he was 7 when he was signed haha, I dont think so.. Dumbass

  13. Raul on December 19th, 2010 at 1:29 am

    “My apologies, are you into astrology? / Cause I’m, I’m tryin’ to make it to Uranus.” Kanye West.

    Actually this make sense in Astrology. Astrology uses the planets as part of their studies
    Uranus represents the sky in astrology. URANOS (or Uranus) was the primeval god (protogenos) of the sky for the Greeks.

    So basically, Kanye West is trying to reach the sky.

    Peace Out.

  14. johnny on January 29th, 2011 at 6:12 pm

    line 21 wasnt that bad rolex push a lex and loune on a lex make sense …love sex meant lexington steele whos nickname was lex and hes a pornstar lol

  16. bucket on April 15th, 2011 at 10:16 pm

    “When it’s hot I’m duckin’ them people with my firearm Look I be straight thuggin.”

    When its an increase in security presence im staying out of the cops sight because I have an unregistered firearm and i am a thug.

    You stupid suburban kid. This list is stupid. I thought this list was going to be entertaining.

  17. Salvador Ripp on August 24th, 2011 at 4:16 am

    It’s onerous to search out knowledgeable folks on this subject, however you sound like you realize what you’re talking about! Thanks

  18. Kerry Carrejo on December 2nd, 2011 at 1:54 am

    You’re quite correct. Now, allow me to suck your cock, please.
