Oh, Skit! 25 Funniest Hip-Hop Interludes (Pg. 5)
The Skit: “Glaciers of Ice” from Raekwon’s 1995 classic, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…
The Punchline: Ghostface: “Any color you want, but it’ll be like blue and cream, you know what I’m sayin’?”
The Bottom Line: Ghostface can clearly make just about anything sound funny. Here, he dreams up fly colorways for his Clarks Wallabees. Boom!
The Skit: “Message to B.A.” from N.W.A.’s 1991 album, Niggaz4Life
The Punchline: Female voice: “Since Ice Cube is sucking so much New York dick, could he come and eat some of this Chicago pussy?”
The Bottom Line: Shots fired! N.W.A. dedicated this hilarious skit to “Benedict Arnold,” better known as Ice Cube, after he left the group in 1990 for financial reasons. (Sidebar: They’re not intended to be quite as humorous as this one, but don’t sleep on the other skits on this album, either.)
The Skit: “Mr. Ice Cream Man (Skit)” from Redman’s 2007 album, Red Gone Wild
The Punchline: Redman (as an ice cream truck driver): “This is a motherfuckin’ stickup! Gimme your motherfuckin’ nickels, quarters, skateboards, baseball cards—all that bullshit!”
The Bottom Line: Just about all of Redman’s solo albums include multiple skits. And most of them have nothing to do with anything. But like Ghostface, Red is still funny enough to get away with it.
