The 100 Best Opening Lines in Rap History, Part 1: 100 - 51

71. "That's you with that bad ass Benz (Ha)/That's you that can't keep your old lady 'cause you keep fucking her friends (Ha)." - Juvenile

Song: "Ha" (1998)
Album: 400 Degreez

Juvenile's "Ha" was his first major crossover, the lead-off from his multiplatinum album 400 Degreez, and it started with an irregular boast that could only come from a southern gentlemen with a talent for sarcastic humor: Not only does your Benz suck, but you can't even hold down your lady. Unless, of course, he was talking about himself: Maybe he's the one with the Benz, you thought, who brags about fucking all of his lady's friends. You'd be the one finding out after this line, like everyone else, because turning the track off from this point forward was simply a non-starter.
