The 50 Greatest Hip-Hop Skits

30. Ghostface Killah "Woodrow the Base Head" (2000)

Producer: N/A
Album : Supreme Clientele
Label : Epic/Sony/Razor Sharp


There is a contrasting blend of humor and hard, cold truth in the "Woodrow the Base Head" skit. The action centers around a fiend named Woodrow (played exceptionally well by rapper Superb) who comes off like some sort of tragic court jester of the 'hood. While at first a source of cheap entertainment, Woodrow's increasingly flippant attitude toward GFK, which the rapper first tries to dismiss ("It's Christmas tomorrow," he tells him), soon spirals into 'Dro threatening to pull out a gat (he warns Ghost that all he has to do is go to his girl's pad and yell, "Suzy! Throw it out the window!). What starts off funny turns into a grim reminder of just how fucked up the drug game really is.
