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

99. "Yo honey-dips, summertime, fine Jheri drippin/Seen you picking with a bunch of chickens how you're clicking." - Ghostface Killah

Song: "Ice Cream" (1995)
Album: Only Built 4 Cuban Linx...

Ghostface's slant-rhyme at the start of "Ice Cream" set it up for all the other Wu members to pick up every flavor of girl mentioned on the track, and like so many other Ghostfaces lines to come, would continue his pattern of complete divisiveness from the first moment, literally: You either already love him or hate him on this track. There's just nothing in between.
