Producer: N/A
Album: Life After Death
Label: Bad Boy


The famous Mad Rapper skit at the beginning of "Kick In The Door" really blew open the floodgates on the term "hater," a crabby curmedgeon who envies the lifestyle of successful rappers to the point of obsession and spends a significant portion of their lowly lives talking ish. Producer Deric "D-Dot" Angelettie's hilarious voice for the Mad Rapper made the character's mini-rants memorable. The popularity of the MR was proven by the numerous appearances he made on subsequent Bad Boy releases—but the first is still the best.
