The 100 Best Hip-Hop One-Hit Wonders

2. Lady of Rage "Afro Puffs" (1994)

Producer: Dr. Dre
Album: Above the Rim
Label: Interscope / Death Row Records / The Atlantic Group


In the early '90s Dr. Dre was as hot as anyone in the music business could be. Literally, everything he touched rose up the charts. So when he introduced The Lady of Rage with "Afro Puffs," a banger from Death Row's Above The Rim soundtrack -she looked like a force to be reckoned with. After all, she'd already made guest appearances on Dre's 1992 album, The Chronic, and Snoop Dogg's 1993 smash Doggystyle. Though "Afro Pufffs" rose to No. 5 on the Billboard Rap charts, Rage's debut LP, Necessary Roughness, kept getting pushed back. Little did we know it when the song dropped, but she'd rocked on with her bad self for the last time.
