Some rappers happen to be thoughtful, intelligent people. From time to time, Rocks Off will have some of them here discussing issues relevant to their culture.
Today's Panel: Bun B, Slim Thug, Z-Ro, OG Ron C, Chingo Bling, Kane, Preemo, Fat Tony, Mr. Wired Up (Oh Boy), Mic Skills, KAB, #Thurogod and more.
Not Invited: Freddy Krueger
This Week's Prompt: What is the best all-time song to have playing while you grind on someone at the club?
Bun B: I wouldn't know. At all.
Slim Thug: "Bump and Grind," R. Kelly.
Z-Ro: "Head, Head and Mo Head."
KAB: What [Z-Ro] said.
Kiotti: If you're a man, any old school Luke songs will do; R. Kelly old school. These young ladies prefer Trey Songz.
RUKUS: Adina Howard, "T-Shirt and Panties."
Rap Round Table: That's better than her "Freak Like Me" song?
RUKUS: Easily. "Freak Like Me" is too uptempo. Trust me on this one. Ginuwine's "So Anxious" works wonders too.
Fat Tony: [Juvenile's] "Back That Azz Up" blew me away at age 11 and still does almost every time I hear it. Great song to wind to at any event.
Medicine Girl: Why Rick Ross' "Hustlin'," of course, that way you can stay M.O.E. while you're poppin' that P on a G.
Mr. Wired Up (Oh Boy) [laughs]: Well, I would say one of my songs, "Start Over Again." But I would have to say... naw... I'ma say my song [laughs].
Preemo: "Flex" by Mad Cobra. Nothing funny about that one. That's baby-making music.
KDOGG: Jamie Foxx, "3 Letter Word."
Rockaway (Producer): I know you didn't ask me, but I gotta say all these rappers would be lying if they didn't it was that Next song "Too Close." I went to a friend's "family" barbecue one time and that came on the boombox and everybody stopped what they were doing and GRINDED.
Delo: Any R. Kelly song from the '90s.
Mac: I can't say just one. "Back That Azz" by Juvey, some R. Kelly. Man, it ain't really matter, long as she got a fat ass.
Kyle Hubbard: Naturally, Wax-A-Million's "No Panties on the Dance Floor." It's the best jam in most situations.
Brad Gilmore: "London Bridge" by Fergie. Pause... there's a back story to it. I was in 8th grade at a house party and the girl I always liked started to grind on me. In my head, I was like, "Swag." I thought I reached Live G status. So I shall always say "London Bridge."
#Thurogod: "Splackavellie" by Preesha.
Chingo Bling: "Charanga" by Fandango USA.
Kane: Z-Ro, "One Deep" [laughs]. Nah, it would have to be "12 Play," R. Kelly. There is a lot of dry-humping that goes on when this comes on.
Mic Skills: Top Five: Ginuwine, "Pony"; Ying Yang Twins ft. Lil' Jon, "Get Low"; Sean Paul, "Get Busy"; Missy, "Get Ur Freak On"; and Juvenile, "Back That Azz Up."
OG Ron C: R. Kelly, "Bump and Grind," and Silk, "Freak Me."
