What Is The Best Boxing-Match Entrance Music?

Some rappers happen to be thoughtful, intelligent people. Every Monday that isn't a national holiday, Rocks Off will have some of them here discussing issues relevant to their culture.

This Week's Panel: Bun B, Paul Wall, One Hunnidt, Mac, O.N.E., Brad Gilmore, Renzo, JD, Preemo, Authentic Snoopy and more

Not Invited: Roy Jones Jr.

This Week's Prompt: In honor of Slim Thug attempting to arrange a fight between himself and Mike Tyson, we asked a bunch of rappers what song we should we use for an upcoming boxing match we have. We were originally considering "My Humps"; they did not agree. Answers below.

One Hunnidt: [laughs] "My Humps"? How about "MMMBop" by Hanson?

Mac: "Southside Summertime."

RRT: That song doesn't make [anyone] want to fight. It makes you want to drink a juicebox and swing in the park.

Bun B: "Ric Flair" by Killer Mike. It will inspire the wrath of Shea.

RRT: Well, that sounds good, but our "wrath" is mostly just us screaming and throwing glitter and snapping our fingers a lot.

Paul Wall: "Break 'Em Off."

JD: Something to jam before you fight... "Fighter" by JD.

Preemo: "2020" from Concrete Dreams. That's some gooooood intro music. Stick and move, sir. Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.

Authentic Snoopy: Bonecrusher, "Neva Scared." "Throw Them Bows," Luda. Anything by Lil Scrappy.

Renzo: I think you should come out to Barack Obama's "Head of the State" track. The ultimate motivation for any battle.
