The 100 Best L.A. Rap Songs

64. Tha Alkaholiks "Only When I'm Drunk" (1993)

Album: 21 & Over
Label: Loud
Producer: E-Swift, Tha Alkaholiks

“Only When I’m Drunk” ingeniously reconfigures the snappy bass-driven sample from The Whole Darn Family’s 1976 jam “Seven Minutes of Funk,” a New York b-boy classic. Instead of a call to arms for alert breakdancers, the song becomes the ultimate hangover cure-all, the tune that beats the rappers’ senses back to life after a long night of E&J and St. Ides. Oops, we mean “Gin and Tanqueray/Drink like Mr. Wendal/Smoke bud like Dr. Dre.”  It’s like an old Furious Five routine, but the only reason they pass the mic is because one of them has to piss.
