19 Hip-Hop Songs That Are Impossible For You To Rap Word For Word
29 June 2015
Who doesn’t love rapping along to their favorite hip-hop songs? Here at MTV News, it’s one of our favorite things to do. For the most part, we’re pretty spot on, hitting each word with the precision of Eminem. Still, there are those rare exceptions when we’re just at a loss.
Yeah, sometimes it’s just impossible to keep up to Tech N9ne’s machine gun flow, or Young Thug’s yips and yelps. We can admit when we’re beat, so here are 19 songs that are impossible for us to rap word for word without the help of Genius.
1. “Rap God” – Eminem
No one except Marshall Bruce Mathers knows the words to this one.
2. “Lifestyle” – Rich Gang
We have Rich Homie Quan’s part down pat, but still don’t know what the hell Young Thug is saying.
3. “Danny Glover” – Young Thug
Nah, for real, it’s really hard to recite Thugger’s lyrics.
4. “Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh)” – Rich Homie Quan
Ummm, we really don’t know all the words to this one either.
5. “The Originators” – Jaz-O feat. Jay Z
Before Jay dropped his 1996 classic Reasonable Doubt, he was rapping lots and lots of words with his mentor Jaz-O.
6. “Notorious Thugs” – The Notorious B.I.G. feat. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
We know Biggie’s verse by heart, but when Bizzy Bone starts rapping we’re all like, “Huh?!”
