The 50 Greatest Bay Area Rap Songs

50. N2DEEP "Back to the Hotel"

Year: 1992
Produced By: Johnny Z
Album: Back to the Hotel
Label: Profile

You'll recognize the same horn sample that would later be sampled by Wreckx-N-Effect for "Rump Shaker" and Ice Cube for "Friday." N2Deep, a stone-faced Latino duo from Vallejo, were the first to use the sample from Lafayette Afro Rock Band's "Darkest Light." This song is notable for its prominent use of a bizarre piece of early '90s West Coast slang: cock, meaning vagina. The second verse ends with TL saying "back to the telly, I gotta get some new cock," followed by echoes of "new cock" over and over again, into the bridge. That did not age well.
