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.
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.
