Album: Hood Hop
Although "Tipsy" missed hitting No. 1 on the Billboard charts due to the phenomenon that was Usher's "Yeah!," it certainly felt like a number-one record, and was ultimately certified two times platinum.
St. Louis rapper J-Kwon's song dominated much of 2004, thanks in part to the unsteady acid-squelch beat and hand clap snares courtesy underrated Midwest producers the Trackboyz. (On the low, J-Kwon's solo record with So So Def, entitled Hood Hop, featured a pretty great selection of beats).
Everyone's favorite spring break anthem, the song was pretty much unavoidable and cleanly crossed over from the hood to the frat house.
