edited April 2016 in Music Talk
so i'm trying to accumulate as many hip-hop songs as possible that have the topic of food in the lyrical content (and not just in the title). this is for a mix i wanna put together for a friend and i figured some of you would have some good ideas for songs i may not have even heard yet...i know there was a similar thread a while back, but the songs weren't limited to strictly hip hop. i'm thinking of some stuff like BIZ MARKIE "chinese food", P.U.T.S. "eat street", maybe MF DOOM "beef rap" and some other stuff offa MM FOOD, etc... if anyone can think of some tracks along these lines, please to drop some knowledge here. like for starters... which were the better FAT BOYS songs about food?? any help is appreciated here. thx

    on another note... did that version of "kookies" that MF DOOM did with Just Blaze with completely new lyrics ever get a proper release?? i'd love to use that track as well.

    What was always most disgusting about that
    video is that they go to all you can eat at
    SBARRO - that place is so foul, I could never
    even finish a meal there, never mind ALL YOU CAN EAT

    DJ Format feat. Abdominal - Ill Culinary Behaviour.
    has that cool food preparation/metaphor type thing happening.

  • Biz - Pickin Boogers

    MC lyte Ice Cream Dream RMX comes to mind or Rasheeda Georgia Peach......though both may be metaphors they speak of food in various ways. The Lyte track is a little more solid.

    Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Posse On Broadway" ("We went to Taco Bell for some Mexican eatin'/but Taco Bell was closed, the girl was on my tip/She said "we'll go the other way we'll stop and eat at Dick's/Dick's is the place where the cool hang out")
    Wu-Tang Clan's "Method Man" ("don't eat Skippy, Jif, or Peter Pan/peanut butter 'cause I'm not butter/In fact I snap back like a rubber/band, I be Sam Sam I am/

    Blueprint's "Big Girls Need Love Too" (the entire song, but respect goes to Printmatic for these lines:

    Got my mind on my money and my money on your food
    Cause if I don't take you out to eat you'll catch an attitude
    I'm no Denzel when it comes to pull
    I know you're only with me because I keep you full
    I used to come over with condoms to smash in you
    But now I bring a snack for you
    Twinkies always seem to get your ass in the mood
    And when you're done grubbin', we go back to your room
    You're so freaky when it's time to get it on
    Sometimes we put ketchup on the bed before we bone
    If you haven't had a big girl, let me describe it
    It's like havin' sex with a waterbed
    But who needs a bed when you're there to lay on
    Who needs a pillow when I got your big arm
    I love gettin' lost inside your big body
    I'll let you anything, except ride me

    She's double her bodyweight, double my fun
    I'm doubling my pleasure like Doublemint Gum


    Gumbo's "Basement Music"


    EDIT:
    50 Cent's "21 Questions" ("I love you like a fat kid loves cake")
    Harmony's "Poundcake"
    Digital Underground's "Oregano Flow" ("Top Ramen's how I'm comin'" along with the rest of the song)

    I also realized some of what I mentioned has been listed, but fuck it.

    EDIT #2:
    Sir Mix-A-Lot's "My Hooptie" ("Hit Mickey D's, Maharaji starts to bug/
    He ate a Quarter Pounder, threw the pickles on the rug")
    Beastie Boys' "Stop That Train" ("Went from the station to Orange Julius/I bought a hot dog from who? George Drakoulias")
    House Of Pain's "Jump Around" ("I can't eat a pig, 'cause a pig is a cop")
    Cypress Hill's "Insane In The Brain" ("toss that ham in the frying pan like Spam")

    A number of references on this album too by The Pacifics:


    As I look at the chicken wings and rice, I am reminded of Ice-T's "Fried Chicken". The song itself isn't about chicken, but after thoroughly cleaning his records and getting exhausted, he sits down for a quick bite.

    Now i'm back, to continue my verses
    I'm never screamin loud with any curses
    Rougly, that a child can learn
    I teach kids, and ducks that burn
    With a flamethrower, and how do you show a
    A grass rapper, cut him with a lawnmower
    Twice, into golden wheat
    Ground the rest into moldin meat
    And cook em, til they all well done
    They not ready, they don't smell done
    Like fish, it ain't my favorite dish
    I grab a steak and to battle i wish
    A coke mc or pepsi i'll sip up
    Drop your face and bring the other lip up

  • hey paulnice... what dj yoda release is this track taken from?


    It was supposed to go on his recent album but the label had trouble clearing it (shocker).
    It was the Oliver Twist sample that posed the most problems I believe.

    I think DJ Authentik already made a mixtape about food, but it mainly focused on his unabiding love for delicious sausages.


    The intro was sicc; he kept up cutting up that T.I. line where he says, "And if you doubt me, dog/you betta out me, dog."


    What you know about that?
