Oh, Skit! 25 Funniest Hip-Hop Interludes (Pg. 10)
The Skit: Madd Rapper skit on “Kick in the Door” from Notorious B.I.G.’s 1997 album, Life After Death
The Punchline: Madd Rapper: “I’ma tell you why I’m mad! These niggas is makin’ $500,000 videos. They drivin’ around in hot cars. They got bitches. They got all that shit. I’m still livin’ with my moms!
The Bottom Line: Don’t lie: You knew this was coming. Few skits have been as memorable as Bad Boy’s “Madd Rapper” routine. After debuting on Biggie’s final album, BB producer Deric “D-Dot” Angelettie performed subsequent skits as the Madd Rapper on albums by The LOX, Black Rob, Puff Daddy and Da Band. As a result, he also managed to come up on an album deal and released his debut, Tell ‘Em Why You Madd, in 2000, which featured production spots from D-Dot’s upstart mentee Kanye West. Daaaaammmmmnnnnn, son! All off a skit? Can’t be mad at that.
