The 100 Best Hip-Hop One-Hit Wonders

38. Shop Boyz "Party Like A Rockstar" (2007)

Producer: Jason Pit Pittman
Album: Rockstar Mentality
Label: OnDeck Records / Universal Republic


The Shop Boyz cashed in on a particular moment in rap when there was a renewed interest in what other genres were doing-namely rock n' roll. This, despite the fact that rock n' roll hadn't been interesting in years. But whatever. A mix of crunk with a wailing lead guitar line drove this song to No. 2 on the Hot 100. But it was mostly written off as a novelty tune, and the Atlanta-based group quickly faded into obscurity.
