Offensive songs are offensive.

This is not AS bad as it seems. If you watch/listen to this without full attention, you might think this is the ruffies theme song. I know, the first time I perused it , my eyes widened and I was like “This can’t be real…they made a song about drugging and raping women?!?!?!”. I mean, the song about cumming on girls backs was a huge hit. It almost made sense that things would evolve into the pro-rape song. I’m kinda surprised there isn’t a dance made up for it. Upon further listens, it’s not that grim. The drug of choice is Molly aka MDMA. So, while they are indeed drugging that hoe, at least she’s not passing out and getting gang raped by a bunch of dudes who require sub titles to understand (I call this being DEEPLY southern). Nah, she’s just getting horny like a raver. So, while they may be using the drugs to get her in the mood, at least she’s awake and, at worst, she’ll just REALLY REALLY regret everything she did the night before.
This got me thinking about what the most offensive songs ever are. This is a tall building to climb.
I figure I’d rattle off a few of my all time top offensive rap songs to give you guys a brief lesson on how deep things can get…
1) Hey Mister- Kool G Rap

For my money, this is the #1 all time more offensive rap song. Not only is about beating women, but it’s about the joy of doing it in public. The whole message is “hey dude, when I’m kicking the shit out of my girl in the middle of the street, keep walking…this is between us”. The first time I heard this , it was played on the Stretch and Bobbito show. I have a feeling they didn’t even know how crazy it was cause they apologized for it towards the end of the song. I’d like to think this song was made in jest. I really would. Kool G rap has always had a very dark sense of humor so it would fall in line with that…I REALLY REALLY hope that’s what it is.

2)Behind the scenes: MC Ren

People talk of Slick Rick’s story telling abilities but this is some next level yarn spinning right here. In this song, Mc Ren laments on his more innocent high school years. The good old days when he and all his friends wanted to fuck that one prissy girl that didn’t talk to anyone. They end up following her home one day only to catch her fucking both her parents. A family that fucks together…umm…I forget how that saying ends…Anyway, as all good stories come to a close, this one end with Ren and his 10 friends jumping through the window and joining in on the incestuous orgy. Obviously.

3)Mind of a lunatic: The Geto Boys

This one is all about Bushwick bill. Looking back, this song was very calculated and they did what they did for a reason. In the early 90’s, there was a huge fight over free speech in rap music. They put parental advisory stickers on albums and tried to ban the 2 live crew in florida. But, by doing all this, it also kicked peoples record sales through the roof. Because of this, some of the more savvy yet demented groups figured out that the more crazy you get, the more controversy happens and the more music you sell. It became a thing where groups would be trying to out do the other with how crazy they could get. The geto’s boy angle? Oh, nothing…just a song about raping a girl, murdering her and then fucking the corpse. At least in Bushwick bill’s verse. Granted, this was all done as a “Portrait” but try explaining that to christian conservatives. Still, even for those of us who got it, this was pretty fucking extreme.

4)I Luh huh: Akinyele

This is one of those touchy songs about abortion. It’s kinda the opposite of that Common song from his third album. In both songs, men are going through the thought process of what to do now that they have a pregnant girlfriend. In Common’s case, he opts against the abortion cause he feels life is sacred for whatever. Akinyele is not so spiritual about the topic. This is more of a love letter to abortion. What begins as a song where a guy is maneuvering through the emotions of possible fatherhood slowly morphs into the Ak-HA-HA giving a laundry list of how he may or may not handle the situation…
“Find chucky if you want Child’s Play, i’ll give your ass an hangar and drop you off in the alleyway” is obviously what every budding new mom wants to hear out her boyfriends mouth.

5)Return of da baby killa: Brother Lynch Hung

Following with the unwanted abortion theme, we have Brother Lynch hung’s song about…umm…shooting a girl in her vagina with a gun? Or maybe just killing babies in general…and then eating them.
Much like the Geto boys big upping rape/necrophilia , this was the theme music for all those people who needed a cannibal theme song about children. Still waiting on the beasteality banger though…

Now, these were just five I pulled off the top. I’m sure , in the annuls of rap, there are some ore truly horrific rap songs about fucked up things I can’t even fathom. But these will have to do.
The funny thing about these songs though is that they are so clearly fictional that it really isn’t THAT offensive. When you compare them to the song “Drug Dat hoe”, they’re actually kinda sweet. I’m pretty sure Bushwick Bill never raped a corpse. I’m also pretty sure Akinyele never kicked his preggo baby moms in the belly. But , at the same time, I wouldn’t be shocked if John Boy and Shawty boy have indeed drugged more then a few hoes in their lives. While giving a girl MDMA so you can fuck her is obviously way less of crime than anything said in any of these songs, the fact that it’s real is actually a hair more frightening. But, then again, that’s what happens when you’re rolling with Shawty boy. Rule #1 of hanging with John boy and Shawty boy? Never leave your drink unattended.

Also , as a bonus, here’s the most comically offensive song ever. Gangsta Nip 4 LYFE.

  1. wildflower by ghostface is one of my favorite offensive songs. In high school we blasted it in the yard with the sole intent of offending

  2. Yo blockhead, on the subject of offensive rap
    After you posted that Danny Brown track “LOL”, I have to say I’m intrigued by his raps. He’s pretty good and there are memorable lines, but I feel like it’s just hard to listen to. like I kinda enjoy it but the sound is so grimy that it is less pleasant when actually listening than when I just think about the songs later. Could you point us to more good tracks? A lot of the shit on his most recent album is pretty meh

    • I dunno if Brown qualifies as “offensive” like this kinda shit. I mean, he’s got lines here and there but it’s more just typical rap bragging. As for what you should look into, peep his “welcome to detroit” mixtapes, his “hot soup” mixtape and his album “The hybrid.”. They’re all awesome.

  3. What about Necro, Cage and that whole crew. I always remember them being insanely offensive. They were also consistent, whole albums about homicide and raping. I remember something about “fucked a bitch with a knife… Took her life”

  4. Hey what about the dirty dogs with classics like “yo mamas on crack rock” or “1 little 2 little 3 little niggas” its from the south I guess. I don’t know an older room mate showed it to like me over ten years ago. When those colorful macs came out

  5. I thought ‘Cunt Renaissance’ by Biggie and R.A the Rugged Man should have made the grade seen as digging vaginas out with spoons is heavily referenced haha.
    Great list tho

  6. Brotha Lynch Hungs Season of Da Siccness is a great album. I always wanted to like Ganksta NIP, but I could never get past the Dr Seuss rhyming skills.

  7. I was sure I’d be seeing some kool keith or other aliases on this list.”Telephone girlfriend”, for what I can remember, for what I can remember would be my choice

  8. Too Short – Cocktails or Blowjob Betty. That would be some pretty awkward shit having your ipod on shuffle with your girl at home just chilling and one of those two songs come on. Hi-C’s Skanless album is great too. Froggy Style and 2 ada Time are great offensive songs, but have such good hooks and beats that a lot of girls I know love those songs.

  9. I never understood skits in albums with the artist fucking some chick, like on Dr. Dre’s Chronic album “The Doctor’s Office” or that track off the Notorious Big’s album. Not so much offensive, but just funny as hell to listen to when your 13 years old, and your dad walks in on you stroking it to those tracks while grazing through some smut mag. Oh wait….

  10. I really thought Brotha Lynch’s use of “eating baby brains” was specifically metaphorical. I had no idea. His teddy bear persona is completely shattered. I’ll never be able to sing that to my kids again….le sad face.

  11. “the overly dramatic truth” by e-lp is the first thing that popped in my head. the subject matters offensive but i dont know a single person who doesnt love that song. i remember people being offended with “uncle sam god damn”(which is the best ive heard in 5 years by the way) by brother ali. political songs always get a rise outta people, but if you really wanna piss people off talk about god…so maybe “holy smokes” (you produce holy smokes rite?) or anything by greydon squared if you believe in a man on a cloud playing a harp.

    personally im offended by 2 chainz being involved in hip-hop in anyway.

  12. The most offensive thing about that song… it’s horrible. Am I the only one that feels like anyone that raps like that is trying to be reminiscent of Lil Wayne? Is that misguided to say?

    • Depends which track you’re referring to. if it’s any of the ones I listed, you’re off about about a decade as lil’ wayne wasn’t making music when all these songs came out.

      • You don’t know me, but damn give me a little more credit than that….
        I meant the drug a hoe video or whatever that shit is called.

      • Sorry. Judging from the comments I’ve been getting over the years I’ve learned to never give anyone more credit than “They might a complete moron”. No offense. It’s just that bad sometimes.

  13. they are making music about making music… more than making music about what they are saying they are doing in the song… albeit it does NOT justify rape at all, but it is essentially tarantino to cinema. The ‘Drug dat hoe’ is extremely tongue in cheek but like so many things on the internet it takes on the persona of pop culture and we digest it as an statement of identity
    whereas it is best understood *outside* of its pop identity and better understood as a comment on male rap identity. I hope that makes sense…
