98. De La Soul "Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey)" (1991)
Producer: Paul Huston, De La Soul
Album: De La Soul Is Dead
Label: Tommy Boy, Warner Bros.
The main groove here is based around a killer combo of The Whatnauts' butter-smooth "Help Is On The Way," with some "Impeach The President" drums and a bass grab via Lou Reed. In typical De La style, what seems like a care-free party song is actually a snarky "Please Don't Make Me Listen To Your Demo" retort against thirsty rappers. With a beat this nice, it's easy to zone out on the lyrics.
