Oh, Skit! 25 Funniest Hip-Hop Interludes (Pg. 4)
The Skit: “Shows! (Interlude)” from Capone-N-Noreaga’s 2000 album, The Reunion
The Punchline: N.O.R.E.: “You better expect a stabbing, you better expect a shootout outside the club. ‘Cause, straight up, what we are?…Off the yelzabubs!”
The Bottom Line: N.O.R.E.’s got a good history with skits. There’s a good one about pigeons. One about Wet Willie’s. And another called “Animal Thug (Interlude)” from his solo debut, N.O.R.E. All worth a listen. But, c’mon: YELZABUBS?!? This one is just too good to pass up.
The Skit: “I’m A Chicken Head (Skit)” from Cam’Ron’s 2004 album, Purple Haze
The Punchline: Female: “I’m a chicken so I’m gonna act like a chicken. Quack! Quack! Quack! Quack! Quack! Or whatever the fuck sound they make.” Cam’Ron: “That’s a duck!”
The Bottom Line: With all the skits he’s done, Killa Cam could’ve filled up all 25 of these slots (don’t worry, this isn’t the only time you’ll see him on this list). From his albums to his mixtapes, the guy goes in (pause) when it comes to creating quality skits. And his co-star certainly helped here.
The Skit: “Rape’n U Records (Skit)” from The LOX’s 2000 sophomore album, We Are The Streets
The Punchline: Jadakiss: “I’m gonna rape your publishing. I’m gonna rape your marketing. I’m gonna rape the budget… I’m gonna rape everything!”
The Bottom Line: Eff a subliminal! Styles, Jada and Sheek used this skit to show off the CEO skills they picked up from their former boss. Hear that, former boss?
