#DeepCuts: So So Def's Best Under-the-Radar Tracks

Rocko "Busy" (2008)

Album: Self Made
Producer: Drumma Boy

Rocko's Self Made was an underrated record. Aside from hit song "Umma Do Me," the LP was deep with masterful Drumma Boy beats and—particular to the Rocko wheelhouse—high concept, low art like "Busy." The meaning of the song is all in the title, which is about how Rocko is a busy person, primarily in dealing with the drug business.

He weds a memorable delivery to goofy jokes ("I like Snow White, he met me down in Disney Land/Fernandoooo down in Orlandoooo"). If you point out to him that Disney Land is in California (Disney World is in Orlando) he'd probably say he was too busy to figure out the difference: "So busy fuckin' 20s ain't got time for dimes."
