97. Special Ed "I Got It Made" (1989)
Producer: Howie Tee
Album: Youngest In Charge
Label: Profile, Arista, BMG
Can it be that it was all so simple back in 1989, when all you needed for a hit single was a hot loop (in this case, Ripple's "I Don't Know What It Is, But It Sure Is Funky"), drums you could dance to, and some catchy rhymes. Teen rap sensation Special Ed later went on to appear on The Cosby Show as "JT Freeze," but thanks to dope beats like this, Hitman Howie Tee guaranteed that Ed will always be best known for this track more than anything.
