The 50 Greatest Chicago Rap Songs

#30. Crucial Conflict "Bogus Mayn"

Year: 1997
Produced By: Wildstyle
Album: Rhyme & Reason OST
Label: Priority

After striking gold with their debut album, The Final Tic, the 'Flict were in high demand throughout the industry. Seriously. From 1997 to 2000, they appeared on just about every single hip-hop-related motion-picture soundtrack and were the go-to guests if you wanted that Midwest appeal on your record. Group member and producer Wildstyle helped craft the Midwest bounce that was popular at the time (the man does NOT get his proper credit), and he took it to another level with the foursome's contribution to 1997's Rhyme & Reason soundtrack, "Bogus Mayn" (which was also a popular slogan in the city). The bouncy track with a country twang introduced listeners to what being a bogus human being entails: women, guns, pimping, and partying. Sometimes you just can't help but to be bogus.
